Father's Walk

When men are involved in their child's education, children perform better in school.

On September 22, 2011, thousands of fathers,  foster fathers, grandfathers, uncles, brothers, godfathers, cousins, and other significant male caregivers and mentors will walk or drive their children to school to show their support of their children's education. 

REGISTER TODAY!!! CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP TO PARTICIPATE IN OR SUPPORT THE FATHERS WALK
REGISTRATION DEADLINE: SEPTEMBER 12, 2011

How it works ...

Employers are asked to allow fathers and other male caregivers to arrange their schedule in order to accompany their children to school and help get the school year started right.  

Men and their children should arrive15-30 minutes before the starting bell.

Fathers and other men should be welcomed guests at their children’s school, given a lapel sticker to show they participated, and asked to complete a participation card.

Some schools will have information and activities available.  Fathers and other men will only go into schools if school staff invites them in.  Otherwise, they will leave after their children enter the building.
