The Charlotte Dads Group is a diverse community of fathers who take an active role in our children’s lives. We've created an online MeetUp group to bring fathers together in the Charlotte Area. We meet with our kids at parks, playgrounds, museums, nature centers, and parent-and-me classes across the city. We felt that there were not enough resources, social groups, or services for dads, so that's what we decided to create! Our group is made up of dads from all walks of life including: stay at home dads, full and part-time working dads, married as well as single parents. Welcome to our community!
THIS MONTH’S TOP STORIES
The Charlotte Dads Group Podcast Interview with Susie Strasser and David Blair
Monday, April 20th 2020
This was a special treat that we wouldn’t have been able to do in person even without the lock down. We were joined by two top level educators from California to discuss Advice and Tips for Homeschooling your Kids. With all North Carolina schools officially closed for the remainder of the current school year, this is a great episode packed with actionable advice for any and all parents!
Advice and Tips for Homeschooling
Ongoing Virtual Dads Night Outs via Google Hangouts
Every other Thursday at 8:30 Pm beginning April 30th, 2020
After a month of successful (and fun) virtual chats, we decided to make it an ongoing event, every other week. The feedback from these chats has been great, with multiple new dads joining each week. It just goes to show that even when times get tough, our members are there to chat and support one another, and only helps to further strengthen our group.
Member Spotlight: Darrell Humphrey
If you’ve been to any of our Dads Night Out events, or if you’ve brought your kids to any of a countless number of MeetUps over the years, then you’ve probably met Darrell. He’s one of the most active dads in our community, and rightfully so; Darrell is also the Founder of the Charlotte Dads Group.
But when he’s not organizing or attending events, he’s also a small business owner. Darrell runs DWH Wood Creations, and specializes in custom made cutting boards, cheese and bread boards, coasters, bottle opener plates, food trays and much more. Every piece of wood he uses in his products is locally sourced right here in North Carolina.
If you’re interested in their products, or you’ve got an idea for a one of a kind custom creation (perfect for birthdays!) head to the contact page and let him know! Can’t decide what to get right now? That’s ok; there are also gift cards for purchase.
