What we learn from our community

Our programs improve father-child relationships and build stronger connections between families, schools and communities. Children with engaged fathers have better academic, social and emotional outcomes, and Dads benefit from being part of a supportive peer-to-peer environment that improves confidence, skills and commitment.
