POPS is a Fatherhood Initiative that seeks to offer support and encouragement for fathers in the Hudson City School District.  It is an intergenerational group that meets twice a month to discuss aiding fathers in any issues around parenting. Attending a meeting makes the father or father figure eligible for incentives including gift cards and field trips planned by the participants. All trips are free including transportation and food.  The goal of this Initiative is to provide opportunities for fathers to develop responsible and meaningful relationships with their children.
