WatchDOGS (Dads of Great Students) is a national program focused on the violence in our children's schools by using the positive influences of fathers and father-figures for a two-fold purpose:

  • (1) to provide an unobtrusive presence in schools, and
  • (2) to be positive and active role models in our children's schools.

Who Are the WatchDOGS?

WatchDOGS are fathers, grandfathers, stepfathers, uncles, and other father-figures who volunteer at least one time per school year.  Their mere presence offers an additional level of security at the school!
