Fathers in Action uses the National Fatherhood Initiative’s 24:7 Dad curriculum which is based on some of the following key principles:
The ability to parent children successfully or unsuccessfully is largely a learned set of behaviors.
Fathers and mothers parent differently.
There are universal aspects of fathering and parenting that exist in all cultures.
Any father, given the chance, can learn to be a great dad and parent.
FIA supports fathers by equipping them with the skills they need to increase in the habits of good fathering/father involvement; increase in pro-fathering knowledge, skills and attitudes, and increase healthy interaction with the mother of their children.
Engaging, evidenced-based curriculum that is adapted to meet each father’s need
One-on-one mentoring with GOL’s fatherhood coach
Connection and support from other fathers during bi-monthly Group Connections for Dads
Referral to community resources
