Men's Group - Watch D.O.G.S.


WATCH D.O.G.S is a National program that schools can adopt to encourage the presence of positive male figures in students’ lives. WATCH D.O.G.S. are fathers, grandfathers, uncles, and other father-figures who volunteer for at least one day each year at an official WATCH D.O.G.S. ® school. Many school principals have reported that the mere presence of a WATCH D.O.G.S. member, dramatically reduces reports of bullying.

What are the duties of WATCH D.O.G.S?

The hope is that you will spend the entire school day at NVCA, but is not limited to the entire day.  We are happy to schedule you for a half day, or any amount of time that you can give. You will check in, in uniform, with the front office and receive your schedule.  During the day, WATCH D.O.G.S. may read and work on flash cards with students, play at recess, eat lunch with students, watch the school entrances and hallways, assist with traffic flow and any other assigned activities where they actively engage with not only their own students, but other students as well.

What is the uniform?

On the day of their participation, WATCH D.O.G.S. are given a brief review of their involvement and they wear an official WATCH D.O.G.S. ® t-shirt with a disposable ‘Dog Tag’ identifying them as WATCH D.O.G.S.
