First Day of School March

The Million Fathers March (MFM) is a campaign to actively encourage fathers and father figures to support children’s academic success and life goals.

Studies show that children benefit academically when they have committed fathers or father figures. The MFM invites fathers, grandfathers, mentors, community leaders, and men’s groups to participate in a back-to-school campaign by taking their children or mentees to the first day of school and following the Million Fathers March Pledges throughout the year.

The campaign also encourages involvement in school-related activities, teacher engagement, and community groups advocating for children’s academic success.
