Dads Make a Difference (DMAD) is a statewide nonprofit organization promoting the positive involvement of fathers and educating youth about responsible parenting.
1 in 3 children live in homes with absent fathers.
We think ONE is too many.
Dads Make a Difference!
Two major factors contributing to children growing up in poverty are absent fathers and too-early parenting.
Dads Make a Difference peer education program helps youth build a foundation of life skills so they're better prepared to think critically about healthy relationships, becoming sexually active, and about the consequences of parenting too soon. As a result, teens like Kevin and Anne are making mature decisions about relationships, taking personal responsibility for their life choices including their readiness to be a parent, and understanding how children benefit from father involvement and co-parenting. They're delaying parenting until they finish college, are in committed relationships, and have the financial resources to provide for a family.
DMAD will celebrate our 20 year anniversary in 2013. To date we have trained 3,000+ teen peer educators who have reached 76,000 middle school-age youth with the DMAD curriculum.
