Watch D.O.G.S. and M.O.D. Squads

WATCH D.O.G.S. is one of the nation’s largest and most respected school-based, family, and community engagement, organizations in the country. In 1998, the very first WATCH D.O.G.S. program launched at Gene George Elementary in Springdale, AR. Today, more than 6,450 schools across the country have launched a WATCH D.O.G.S. program of their own. Each school year hundreds of thousands of fathers and father-figures make a positive impact on millions of children by volunteering millions of hours in their local schools through this amazing one-of-a-kind program.

M.O.D. Squad is Birmingham's own version of Watch D.O.G.S. for Moms!  Mothers on Duty, also known as MOD Squad allows our mother figures to become involved in their student's lives.  The goal is to have these women spend at least one day a year at the school to be an extra set of eyes and ears as a positive role model.

Moms, grand moms, aunts, step-moms and adult sisters…….this is your chance to spend the day assisting in various ways throughout the school. You will get the opportunity to see what your student's day is like.
