WATCH D.O.G.S. is an innovative K-12 program of the National Center for Fathering focusing on improving education in our nation's schools by using the positive influence of fathers and father figures.

WATCH D.O.G.S.® invites fathers, grandfathers, uncles, or other father figures to volunteer at least one day, all day, at their child’s/student's school during the school year. Individuals sign up at a kick-off event such as a “Dads and Kids Pizza Night” or “Donuts with Dad” or in the office at any time throughout the school year.

Watch D.O.G.S. volunteer's perform a variety of tasks during their volunteer day including: Monitoring the school entrance, assisting with unloading and loading of buses and cars, monitoring the lunch room or helping in the classroom with a teacher's guidance by working with small groups of students on homework, flashcards or spelling.

The program is overseen by a “Top Dog” volunteer who partners with the school administrator to coordinate scheduling and identify opportunities for Watch D.O.G.S. to provide assistance at the school.
