Actively involved fathers are a positive force in the lives of their children and their community. Dad’s Take your Child to School (DTYCTS) is an event that promotes father involvement by encouraging fathers, stepfathers, foster fathers, grandfathers, uncles, brothers, godfathers, and other significant male caregivers to take their children to school in September and remain involved throughout the year.
This webinar, presented by Kenneth Braswell Executive Director of Fathers Incorporated, Greg Owens Director of Special Projects for the Office of Strategic Planning & Policy Development at OCFS and Ann-Marie Yeates Program Outreach Specialist for the New York State Fatherhood
The Dad's Take your Child to School webinar is designed to introduce new schools to the event, and to welcome back those that have participated in previous years. As many will attest, this event can be as large or small as each institution wishes. Attendees will receive:
-A brief background of the event and its purpose;
-Examples of ways that DTYCTS has been celebrated in the past;
-Information on resources that are available; and
-A couple of small requests from the New York State DTYCTS committee.
