THE STORY:

1 in 3 children in America live in father-absent homes.  We think ONE is too many.  Dads DO make a difference!

Two major factors contributing to children growing up in poverty are absent fathers and too-early parenting.

Dads Make a Difference peer education program helps youth build a foundation of life skills so they're better prepared to think critically about healthy relationships, becoming sexually active, and about the consequences of parenting too soon.  As a result, teens like Devin and Anna are making mature decisions about relationships, taking personal responsibility for their life choices including readiness to parent, and understanding how children benefit from father involvement and co-parenting.  They're delaying parenting until they finish college, are in committed relationships, and have the financial resources to provide for a family.  DMAD strengthens communities because these youth are better equipped to make intentional choices about creating families; and being prepared, capable parents increases family resources.  DMAD is a youth development program in the purest sense, by informing young people about the consequences of their choices and by involving them as teachers of the message.

The need for parents who are involved in the lives of their children remains critical. Dads Make a Difference provides a way for young people - both male and female - to consider this important need - from their perspective as a young person and also for the future family they will form. Through a youth teaching youth model, this critical conversation happens in classrooms and through youth serving programs. DMAD is an excellent example of prevention at its best.  Your financial support will help us continue this important work.
