The kids and I look forward to Dynamite Dads every month - it's our chance to do some great activities, meet new friends, and have some excellent bonding time. Plus, my wife loves having an evening free where she doesn't worry about dinner!

Volunteering as a CAP mentor has given me a clear understanding of the positive effect a community supported organization can have on our schools. The opportunity to learn and grow with an amazing young person for 10+ years has had a profound impact on my openness to new ideas and leadership skills.
