Fatherhood Initiative & Mentoring

The Fatherhood Initiative’s purpose is to increase awareness of fathers’ impact on the family. We share strategies that will empower men to lead their families, as well as, provide information about how to navigate through challenging family issues.  As men, we celebrate fatherhood and seek to demonstrate the value of having fathers involved in their children lives now and in the future.

General Topics:

  • Fathers’ Role in the Family
  • Family Members’ Roles
  • Father & Youth Relationships
  • Youth Expectations of Fathers
  • Protection of Womanhood
  • Understanding Lines of Authority
