 For Parents, Programs, and Schools

Invite The Down To Earth Dad to provide the following services to your staff and families:

  • Down To Earth Dad Staff Trainings to optimize your team's effectiveness in engaging parents and families.  This is a "live" in-person training where Down To Earth Dad Founder Patrick Mitchell travels to you.

  • Family Storytelling Night to enhance early literacy, engage your parents and families, beef up school readiness, and involve your community partners (if you wish) as you deliver a super-FUN evening to your families!

  • Evening With Dads to energize your dads, grandpas, and uncles, set goals with them (goals that meet with your approval), and to keep them involved all year long.

NEW!  The Down To Earth Dad Virtual Trainings for key members of your team.  Consists of conference calls, webinars, and one-to-one consultation throughout the school year.  This  "training from afar" is a superb value for programs on a tight budget.  Your key staff members will have an opportunity to receive the training they need, but at a fraction of the "live" training cost of inviting Patrick Mitchell to town.

Patrick has appeared on national television as a fatherhood expert, and on numerous radio programs and has keynoted major conferences and trained thousands of educators, practitioners, and parents on how to optimize significant male involvement for the benefit of children's cognitive, social, and emotional development -- in the early years and beyond.
