Dedicated Dudes is a volunteer program at Valley View
that actively involves fathers and father figures in the
education and well-being of our students.

Through the Dedicated Dudes program, these dedicated individuals contribute their time to provide positive male role models, enhance school security, and support various school activities.
By participating in activities like recess, P.E., assisting in their student’s classrooms, and engaging in school events, the Dedicated Dudes play a significant role in creating a supportive and enriching educational experience for our students.
