Fatherhood Reading Squad


Leaders for Readers in Neighborhood Schools

The Fatherhood Task Force values fathers as educators.
A father's role as an educator takes learning to another height. Be a role model for children to learn, read, explore, think and imagine. They will soar. Fathers are an important resource for the success of children. Their presence, support and interaction leads to significant positive changes in their academic and social future.

Inquire about the Fatherhood Reading Squad: Leaders for Readers program and volunteer your time to read or tell stories in your child's school.

We value the importance of fathers’ engagement with children from before they are born through adulthood. and work toward helping them to have closer and more productive relationships.

  • When non-custodial fathers are highly involved with their child's learning, the children are more likely to get A's at all grade levels - U.S. Dept. of Education, 1997
  • Children can learn how to deal with higly charged emotions in the context of playing with their fathers.(Father facts from the National Fatherhood Initiative - NFI)
  • Sustained contact with their father is the strongest predictor of a son's self esteem, while the most important single factor for daughters is affection from their fathers. (NFI)
  • Father love is a better predictor than mother love for certain outcomes including absence of delinquency and conduct problems, absence of substance abuse, overall mental health, and well being. (NFI)
