Are you a new or expecting father? Do you identify as a father figure? Do you smoke and want to quit or stay quit? Join Dads In Gear – a FREE program about being a dad, healthy dad, and smoke-free dad.

Dads in Gear (DIG) is a unique, evidence-based program for expectant and new dads who want to be healthy and smoke-free.

DIG harnesses the power of social connections and men’s desire to be good fathers to inspire their determination to stop smoking and become more physically active.

The main objective of the program is for men to gain the strength, the motivation, and the tools they need to build healthy lifestyles for themselves and their families.

If you have questions about the program please reach out to Tami Muhlert at 250.542.3114 Ext: 211 or [email protected] 

We understand that those working in the social services and healthcare sector have faced challenges navigating complex situations while supporting others during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Especially over the past couple of years, those working in these sectors have made significant personal sacrifices and juggled challenging work conditions on behalf of their work to support those in need.
We are seeking volunteers to serve as a support system for these individuals during this extraordinarily challenging time.

Care to Speak is looking for volunteers. Volunteers can be based anywhere in BC! If you have work experience in health care or social services.
