The DAD Project

You’re a dad and proud of it, as all dads should be!

Why? Because we do fun stuff, get our hands messy, tell crazy stories and kids think we’re awesome. We give hugs and high-fives, apply band aids to boo boos and fix broken hearts too.

Dad, do you wonder just how well you’re doing raising your kids?

Want to know if your fathering is positive?

Do you hope your kids will come out better than you did?

That’s where we come in - The DAD Project is your guide for good dads who desire to become GREAT DADS. Our free dad classes are like getting in the man cave with other guys, comparing notes and developing a plan of action that leads to success. Master your Dad skills on Tuesday nights in the Dad Cave. Dinner & Childcare are provided.

Reservations are recommended. Call The DAD Project at 909-878-2326. Find out more about the next round of FREE DAD classes at The Dad Project.
