Mission

The Dads Make a Difference MISSION is to promote the positive involvement of fathers and to educate youth about responsible parenting. Our VALUES - DMAD recognizes the research that finds that positively involved fathers have an impact on the social, psychological, emotional, and physical well-being of their children and families, as well as on the health of communities. - DMAD believes young people who are engaged in research-based youth development programming like DMAD will build the skills, attitudes, knowledge, and experience that prepare them for the present and for the future. - DMAD believes communities have a responsibility to provide opportunities that empower both boys and girls with the information and skills they need to make responsible decisions about fathering and parenting. - DMAD believes that young people are positive resources capable of making significant contributions to their communities, and are essential to program implementation. - DMAD recognizes the research that finds that peer education training provides leadership skills development for youth. - DMAD respects all aspects of diversity among Minnesota families, and the different cultural norms regarding adolescent sexuality, pregnancy prevention, family formation, and parenting. - DMAD recognizes that its work is strengthened by collaboration and partnership and works with other organizations at the local, state, national, and international level.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
