My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Dads Make A Difference, Stillwater, MN, USA
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!
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.
