Rads Dads are a part of the WATCH D.O.G.S. program. WATCH D.O.G.S. is one of the nation’s largest and most respected school-based, family, and community engagement, organizations in the country. Since the program’s creation in 1998, more than 6,450 schools across the country have launched a WATCH D.O.G.S. program of their own. Each school year hundreds of thousands of fathers and father-figures make a positive impact on millions of children by volunteering millions of hours in their local schools through this amazing one-of-a-kind program.

Who are Rad Dads? Fathers, grandfathers, step-fathers, uncles, and other father figures who volunteer to serve at least one day a year in a variety of school activities as assigned by the school principal or other administrator.

On the day you volunteer, you must wear your Rad Dads t-shirt so that we are consistent and easily recognizable. When you check-in at the front desk, just inform the clerk that you are there as a Rad Dad.
