About The Program

Powered by Fathers Incorporated and Furthering Fathering.

Real Dads Read is a program aimed at elementary and middle school aged children (K-8) and designed to engage ALL fathers/men in encouraging children to enjoy reading.

While the overall project is designed to encourage all fathers, there is a particular need to emphasize a focus on Black and Latino fathers; particularly in low-income communities. Our efforts will begin by engaging barbershops and eventually schools and churches.
