Real Dads Read is a two-generation approach to engaging and improving outcomes for both men and the children for which they are responsible. Our program goals are:
Encourage to Read
Encouraging children to develop a love of reading
Improving children’s literacy skills and educational outcomes
Strengthening the Bond
Strengthening bonds between fathers/caregivers and their children
80% of low-income children will not read proficiently by third grade, a significant predictor of child's school success.
Reading to children is a clear and beneficial way for fathers to spend quality time with their children.
