Father's Getting Involved in Their Teen's School: All Pro Dad

School is opening soon and parents are scrambling to get school supplies, uniforms books and other things needed to start off the school year.  There is one item you can't forget, that is yourself!  

Parent involvement has a positive impact on their child's academic and social life in school.  It can be difficult with many single parent households or parents that are working more than one job to make ends meet, but your child's school should be high on your priority list. Even if you can only volunteer an hour a month, it makes a difference.

Many think that parent involvement is focused around moms, don't be fooledFathers are needed and wanted!  More and more dads are getting involved and finding the time to make a difference their child's life.
All Pro Dad's  is a simple idea with a profound impact. It's a one-hour monthly breakfast held before school where fathers and their children meet with other dads and kids in the school cafeteria or a local restaurant. During this time, they discuss a wide range of family topics, spend time together, create fun memories, and are equipped with resources to strengthen their relationship. For more about All Pro Dad’s, please watch the short video.
