Review for Dads Make A Difference, Stillwater, MN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Dads Make a Difference uses teenagers to train middle school students about the importance of respect, about the the issue of parenting too soon, and about how important it is to involve fathers with their families. The mentoring relationship and peer advocacy model really works, and the Wilder foundation did a study to prove that DMAD training creates lasting attitude change. DMAD has contributed to the decrease in teen pregnancies in Minnesota. It is an exceptional organization.

Review for Dads Make A Difference, Stillwater, MN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My first contact with dad's make a difference was because of my job. My supervisor at the Minnesota Department of Human Services had asked me to attend a training about 16 years ago. I was monumentally impressed by how well they trained young people about respect, planning for the future, and delaying too early pregnancy.

Since that time, the agency has trained thousands of junior high and high school students. The Wilder Foundation has done an empirical study that verifies that dads make a difference training produces tangible attitude changes.

The agency will be celebrating its 20th anniversary in the summer. It does exceptional training to produce responsible teenagers and, eventually, but not too soon, parents.
