WE Dads

I’m Jarryd, the community animator for the WE Dads Program. As an immigrant and local father in Québec City, I aim to empower men to enhance their well-being and cultivate strong, meaningful relationships with their children and fellow dads in the community.

As dads, we aspire to help our children develop a skill set to navigate this world. I achieve this by curating enjoyable and kid-friendly activities in which we dads can participate together.

Let’s embark on this fulfilling journey of fatherhood together. Please feel free to contact me directly and get connected with what is happening.

Programs WE are connected with

Buddy Up – The Buddy Up campaign aims to drive authentic conversation amongst men and to promote men’s health and well-being through making connections with other men in the community.

Buddy Up to help support your fellow men, recognize when a buddy may be struggling and be ready to take action when they are in need. Through friendship and peer support, men can mutually share experiences, problem-solve informal settings and ultimately help prevent other men from suffering in silence.

Living without Violence – This 20-week program is for English-speaking men of Québec City who want to prevent violence in their marital-family life. Actively develop stronger communication and conflict resolution skills, such as listening, speaking up, problem-solving and fair negotiation. The program was developed by ACCROC and Paix and offered in partnership with the Wellness Centre.
