About our Youth Services



D2 Academy is led by a group of current or former military veterans with at least three years of experience who will operate in teams of two.  Each instructor will go through our 20 hour DaD training based on the book Discipline and Direction, Dad principles for single mothers written by our executive director and founder Terry Stephens II. D2 academy will also occasionally have certified therapists and counselors on site during special activities. Throughout the duration of the program our DaD teams will be available to parents, teachers, coaches, school staff, court staff, and others for collaberation and consultation.
