Dynamic Dads

What is a Dynamic Allen Dad?

A father who has a huge heart and hopes to help others. A father who puts kids before himself. A man who hopes to influence kids in a positive way. A positive role model, has a strong handshake, a man that is genuine. Does this sound like a father you know? Our goal is to provide visible and identifiable fatherly role models on our campus for students to recognize and connect with. High fives with the students will be encouraged!

What is the time commitment?

The program will be offered two Fridays each month. The time commitment is about 30 minutes per session. Sign up for any Friday that works for you! You can help out once a month or once a year! Shifts are 8:30-9:00 for AHS and 8:25-8:55 for LFC every other Friday each month.

Becoming a DAD is easy!

All volunteers must complete a background check to be eligible to volunteer in AISD. Once AISD has approved your volunteer application, you are ready to SIGN UP TO VOLUNTEER!

Dynamic Dad, Joe Vanek and Sophmore, Grace Farris
