Fathers play a critical role in the wellness of the family and in the healthy development of a child—including instilling proper social, emotional, and communication skills, reducing risk-taking behaviors in adolescence (including alcohol and drug use and teen pregnancy), and academic achievement.

Dad Time is designed to provide free monthly opportunities for dads to connect with their kids in fun and unique ways that promote positive father-child interactions, healthy communication, and teamwork and problem-solving skills.
