What are the requirements? We are looking for father figures (dads, grandpas, uncles, step -dads, brothers, etc.) to volunteer an hour or more out of their day to help provide a positive male role model in our school.
BONUS – Upon your arrival time, you will get to wear an “Eagle MEN” shirt showing your role for the day! This will give the students and staff an immediate symbol to who you are, what you are doing, and why you are at IKE!
