What Is WATCH D.O.G.S.?

WATCH D.O.G.S. is a national program that organizes fathers and father figures to provide positive male role models for students and enhance school security. 

WATCH D.O.G.S. Across America® is a non-profit organization which operates “To turn the hearts of the fathers to their children and the hearts of the children to their fathers.”

Who are WATCH D.O.G.S. (Dads Of Great Students)?

WATCH D.O.G.S. are fathers, grandfathers, uncles, and other father figures who volunteer for at least one day each school year at an official WATCH D.O.G.S. school. During the day, WATCH D.O.G.S. may read with students, work on flash cards with the kids, play at recess, eat lunch with their child, watch the school entrances and hallways, assist with traffic flow, mentor students, or perform any other assigned activities. They actively engage with not only their child(ren), but other students as well. Their mere presence offers additional security in the building during the school day.
On the day of their participation, WATCH D.O.G.S. are given a brief overview of their duties and an official WATCH D.O.G.S. Across America® t-shirt or vest to wear, identifying them as WATCH D.O.G.S. for the day.
