Y Princesses

 

The Purpose:

Purpose

The purpose of the Y Princess Program is to foster understanding and companionship between father and daughter.

Slogan

"Friends Always"

The slogan "Friends Always" does not mean that father and daughter relate to each other as equals, such as two girls who are friends. Rather, it means that father and daughter have a close, enduring relationship in which there is communication, understanding and companionship. The Y Princess Program encourages such a relationship by providing a means for father and daughter to share enjoyable experiences, to observe and learn about one another and to develop mutual respect.

 

The Program:

What is the Y Princess program?
The program has a long history of providing elementary school age girls and their dads with opportunities for fun times, learning, and mutual understanding.

Y Princess programs are for dads who want quality, planned, one-on-one time with their daughters. Membership in the Princess Program is open to every father with a daughter K to sixth grade.

Participation in activities by both father and daughter is a vital part of Y Princess. Father and daughter share in games, crafts, outings and campouts. The parent observes his child's relationship in the group, and sees the child's strengths and needs, affording a basis for helping the child to grow. Likewise, the child observes the parent in action with other parents and kids. This provides the child with an important role model.
