Being a father is hard – we get it. At Parenting Journey, we believe that all parents and caregivers want to be strong, positive role models. First and foremost, we believe that the best way to raise hope and build stronger family relationships is to start by identifying your strengths and build from there!
Parenting Journey for Fathers
Offered in English
In Parenting Journey for Fathers, a small group of fathers and father figures meet for 2 hours a week for 12 weeks. The program includes activities, discussions, a family-style meal, and complimentary childcare.
This program helps fathers and father figures improve their relationships with their children and family while becoming the man and dad they aspire to be. Through a combination of hands-on activities and guided discussions, you will develop knowledge and skills that support you as a parent and role model. By reflecting on your own childhood you will be able to choose what kind of father you want to be and create your own style of parenting – one that reflects your personal vision and values.
