Join a Tribe

Are you ready to have some fun and connect with your child? Now is the time! Here is how you join a Tribe.

FORM or find A TRIBE

You will spend the next three years in the program with a Tribe, a group of dads with kids of the same age and gender. We have found the optimal number for a Tribe is between 6 - 10 pairs. Many Tribes are formed with neighbors, classmates, sports teams, etc. of the same age and gender. Your Tribe must be formed before the First Year Dad Training in September.  

1) You may gather a group of dads/daughters or dads/sons


2) Let us help you find a Tribe! 
We will help you to form a Tribe with others near you based on zip code, age and gender. Fill out our online Find a Tribe FormAfter you have completed the form, we will be in touch with more details.

Next Steps

All participants must fill out a Y Guides Registration Form, with payment attached. Everyone must attend a First Year Dads Training where registration forms and payment must be turned in for the entire Tribe.
