Studies by the U.S. Department of Education have demonstrated that a positive adult male role model will have a uniquely positive impact on the development and educational success of a child. Dramatically increasing the child's likelihood of graduating and getting mostly A's along the way, while at the same time, dramatically decreasing the likelihood of that child living in poverty, getting involved with drugs and alcohol, and avoiding potentially devastating choices that result in a criminal record. The U.S. Department of Education has identified Watch D.O.G.S. program as an effective way to increase male involvement in our nation's schools.
Each school year thousands of men volunteer to work at least one day in their child's school through the Watch D.O.G.S. program. These men work along side the educators to help as crossing guards, car/bus rider facilitators, hallway monitors, library assistants, lunchroom helpers, classroom and homework tutors and physical education coaches. The possibilities are endless! Every school year these men have a positive impact on the lives of hundreds of thousands of kids.
