Organization Details
Given the impact of the coronavirus we have provided a virtual Daddy and Me Network for expectant and new fathers with children 0-3 years to meet and explore challenges they face raising children, strengthening relationships and dealing with parental social justice issues. We provided a Virtual Fatherhood Conference 20/20: A Sharp Focus on Fathers' Impact on Youth to Miami-Dade fathers and providers focused on leading innovative and systemic changes to engage fathers in children's lives. We worked with M-DCPS to offer a Virtual Reading Challenge to fathers and male role models to celebrate the 7th Fathers in Education Day emphasizing the importance of reading with their children at home. We virtually provided the 7th annual Fathers in Action & Advocacy Week with M-DCPS by inviting our partners to provide parenting workshops to M-DCPS fathers and families. In partnership with M-DCPS we identified strategic steps for ways to increase father participation in schools via a Caring Committee and to provide a Children's Bill of Rights to address social justice issues affecting children. We collaborated with FIU School of Education and Human Development to produce a feature article on Bringing Neighborhood Dads into Classrooms: Supporting Literacy Engagement for the Reading Teacher Journal. We continue to reach out to our fathers and families with their health and wellness in mind.
