How WATCH D.O.G.S.® Works
WATCH D.O.G.S.®, a K-12 program, invites fathers, grandfathers, uncles, or other
father figures to volunteer at least one day all day at their child’s/student's
school during the school year. Individuals sign up at a kick-off event such as a
“Dads and Kids Pizza Night” or “Donuts with Dad” or in the office at any time
throughout the school year. The program is overseen by a “Top Dog” volunteer who
partners with the school administrator to coordinate scheduling and identify
opportunities for WatchDOGS to provide assistance at the school. WatchDOG
volunteers perform a variety of tasks during their volunteer day including
monitoring the school entrance, assisting with unloading and loading of buses
and cars, monitoring the lunch room, or helping in the classroom with a
teacher's guidance by working with small groups of students on homework,
flashcards, or spelling.
