From its beginning in 2009, the SDSK program has always focused on serving dads and their kids. Built with funding from the PHAC, tested in communities, and validated through feedback and evaluations, this program is the gold standard for helping dads:

  • Relate better to and connect with their child
  • Commit more quality time with their child
  • Teach their children about important topics like emotions, health, and communication

As research continues to prove, involved, responsible and devoted dads improve their kids cognitive, emotional and social development.


SDSK is an activity based fathering program. There are 8 sessions, each designed to bring fathers and children together. Activities focus on helping dads engage in positive play with their kids, while the group format helps fathers discuss relevant topics together.

Facilitators LOVE this program for the community and connection it creates among the families. Here is what they say:

  • "SDSK helps dads engage with other dads around the topics of fathering which helps break isolation. They discover they are not alone in their fathering challenges."
  • "It provides dads with the concrete benefits that are derived from engaged fathering. It encourages them in the value of their efforts.”
  • "The program encourages kids by giving dads a chance to express what makes their kid(s) a super kid. It also encourages dads by having kids say what makes their dad a super dad.”

Participants find the practical guidance on fathering offers the most value. Here is what they say:

  • “I have enjoyed learning about the different aspects of being a dad, some aspects we learned were things that I had not even thought of earlier.”
  • "I really have learned more about my child and different/better ways to enjoy my time with him because of this program."
