School program

Like everything we do, our school program is about giving children the best fathers and father figures they can have so they can thrive academically, socially, physically, and emotionally.

Program Benefits

Research shows schools who specifically target fathers will see better outcomes for students.

When fathers participate in school activities, meetings and events, children enjoy school more, are less likely to have behaviour issues and are more likely to participate in extracurricular activities. Children are also more likely to engage in school and perform better academically.

Other benefits include:

  • Increased student connectedness with school
  • Increased physical activity and better health outcomes
  • Increased self-esteem and resilience
  • Reduced bullying behaviours
  • Reduced delinquent behaviours
  • Reduced engagement in unhealthy and risky behaviours
  • Reduced alcohol, tobacco and drug use
  • Increased social responsibility and social maturity
  • Reduced suicide and self-harm
  • Reduced substance abuse

A three-tiered program approach

We meet schools and their fathering community at their point of need. No matter where you are based or the community you represent, we are here to support you at each stage of your journey to help engage your fathering community and support family partnerships for the benefit of student development and outcomes.

What’s involved

Our evidence-based programs support schools to effectively engage students, fathers and families and build strong community partnerships for the lifelong benefit of students.​ Programs include:

  • Evidence-based information for fathers on relevant topics such as supporting learning, positive discipline and encouraging resilience.
  • Events and activities for schools to share with fathers and families to build engagement, skills and knowledge.​
  • Step-by-step support, tools and professional development resources for staff.​

Our research shows a three year commitment provides optimal outcomes for schools, fathers and students. ​
