I recommend this program to all high School and Middle schools. My students have been involved in DMAD over the past 15 years and this program had help them build a better relationship with there father. Older teens can be effective role models for younger youth becasue they are closer in age and experience. WE NEED THIS PROGRAM

DMAD is a awesome program for youth and adults, the work over the 12 plus years I have trained for them has been very informative for the youth and the adults that attend the training with them. Two of my four children have gone through the training. Great asset to are youth as it gives them information that will last a lifetime.

My students have been involved over the past 5 years and it has taught my students so much as well as the middle school students. I can't say enough for this program and for Jan Hayne and all the work she does. I recommend this program highly to anyone who would dare to be involved.Darci Cyr, Eagan High School Educator

I have been having our students from the Alternative school teach Dads make a Difference for several years now. I get students trained, and they teach it in our Health Class. Having our students teach how important fathers are in childrens life, makes a much better impact on others. The student teachers share their stories which makes the class more interesting. I am very happy to have had this opportunity to have this curriculum in our school. thanks. caroline Unke

I have been working with DMAD since 1998-first as a student trainer, then as a college intern and lastly as an adult trainer. The information I have learned through my experiences with DMAD I use in all the other facets of my life. My relationships with family and friends have improved due to the knowledge gained and taught in DMAD as well as helping me become a better social worker. I have seen hundreds of high schoolers go through this program, enjoy it and learn a lot about themselves and what they want for their future. The information provided by this curriculum is more important than ever before and will assist teenagers in making healthy, positive choices.

I was trained into the program in 1996 as a sophmore in high school. The program help me personally and helped clarify my feelings for my own situation. I had a complicated relationship with my father and this program helped me resolve alot of the issues I had in my own life. I enjoyed teaching in the middle schools as well as participated as a trainer for DMAD. This program has so much "heart". The experinces I have had with DMAD are priceless!

I was introduced to DMAD in 2002. I was still a high school student, who had very loose ties to my father. I spent a lot of time in the following years volunteering with DMAD and teaching the progam to middle shcool students. Through seeing the stories of others, I was given the courage to strengthen my relationship with my own father. since 2004, I my relationship with my father has become just as strong as anyone else's. I think DMAD has a great effect on other people like me. It is a 5 Star Organization without question. Those who serve on the board, and those who founded the program have HUGE hearts.

I have been involved in DMAD for at least the past 10 years. I love that it is peer-taught and the students really respond to the curriculum. Jan Hayne does a nice job of setting up the trainings and the curriculum is kept up to date and relevant to the age group. The communication has been wonderful and professional. The students deserve to have this presented to them.

Dads Make a Difference is a unique program in which participants can literally grow up in the program. They start as middle school participants and can become trainers. The team that teaches the curriculum is like a family and provides great roll modeling to high school participants who in turn role model to middle schoolers it should be a required curriculum in the state.

This program is great in that it not only teaches young people about responsibilities and consequences of too early parenting, it also builds leadership capacity in the teens who are peer educators. The curriculum addresses peer pressure, responsible choices, family planning, paternity education and more. This unique program offers so much to high school students, middle schoolers and the adult who support it.

I was introduced to DMAD back in 1997 while working as a Teen Parent Teacher for an ALC in St. Paul. I felt really good about bringing my students (both parents and others interested) to these trainings! It was a very thoughtful, researched-based approach to positive youth development and also I felt the excitement of watching my students in their cross-age teaching of Junior high school students! I would highly recommend any schools or organizations interested in helping support the youth to bring teens to a training or have them come teach in your Junior High School. Students take these topics very seriously and are eager for guidance & direction from all of us caring & encouraging adults in their lives!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

There are many important aspects to this work, on many different levels. The positive youth development piece, the inclusion of and importance of men in their children's lives (the negative effects of father absence), as well as the whole idea of preventing too early pregnancy by discussing the realities of parenthood in advance, before students make sexual activity choices.
