Why Should I be a Watch D.O.G. ?

As we work to drive down drop-out rates and increase graduation and college completion rates, FATHERS have an important role to play. Children are always watching. Engaged FATHERS can strengthen our schools, mentor and tutor students and demonstrate through their actions how much they value their children’s education.”
