Meet other New York City Stay At Home Dads, Part-time at home dads, work from home dads, freelance dads, working dads, and involved fathers in and around NYC to socialize and interact with other guys who enjoy spending quality time with their kids during the day.

Our primary goal is to form an inclusive & active community of involved dads so we can do activities together and take advantage of the wonderful resources that the city has to offer.

Organized meet up events are offered several times per week at a local park, playground, museum, playgym, children's venue, parent & me class, zoo, restaurant, or someone's playroom/lounge in their building.

There are not enough resources, support groups, or services for dads in NYC. This group is the pioneer in achieving more for dads in NYC and the surrounding NY Metro area including Jersey City, Long Island, and lower Westchester!

Additionally, check out our BLOG SITE to read about playgroup experiences, relevant news articles, upcoming events and happenings, research, work-life balance, tips for new and expectant dads, and more from a diverse group of dad voices: http://www.nycdadsgroup.com/

Expectant father? We now offer a practical & hands-on workshop for expectant fathers - New Dad Boot Camp: http://www.nycdadsgroup.com/p/new-dad-boot-camps.html

The NYC (New York City) Dads Group is the flagship member of the City Dads Group national organization. City Dads Group has communities of dads in other major metropolitan cities such as NYC, Boston, Philly, L.A., San Francisco, Denver, Chicago, Atlanta, Dallas, Indy, St. Louis, Portland, and Columbus. If you have any fatherly friends who live within a 100-mile radius of any of the City Dads Group cities, please let them know about these other Dads Groups and encourage them to join.

Finally, we have a $25/year suggested donation to join our Meetup group. This amount is less than the cost of a single kid's class in NYC, but collectively, the money will be used to reach out to more dads around the city, participate in more parent expos, & continue to use our voice to bring the privilege of active fatherhood to all dads.

** Please note this group is strictly for Dads with kids. We want this group to be a comfortable place for Dads to learn and talk about anything parent related.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
