Dad Central Seeking Partners for Local Training

Submitted by Brian Russell, Provincial Coordinator, Dad Central Ontario

Dad Central Ontario is looking to build its network in Hastings-Prince Edward.  Our hope is to provide better support for the work of engaging fathers in your community.

To do this we would like to offer a full-day workshop called “My Dad Matters: Engaging men raising the next generation”.

This training is to include a variety of representatives from different organizations and sectors in your community, primarily from folks who work with fathers and families.

My Dad Matters has the following goals:

  • Overview of fatherhood today
  • Influences on father involvement
  • Understanding the father-child attachment process
  • Assessing present practice with engaging fathers
  • Reviewing best practices
  • Community networking
  • Action plan for next steps

Our hope is that through the course of the training a network will form in your community that can continue to support the work of engaging dads and men raising kids.

In order for this training to happen we need a handful of committed individuals who can help with the following:

  • Planning and logistics for the workshop
  • Venue and meals
  • Promotion to the community

If you are interested in helping with this, please contact

Wendy Anderson, Coordinator, Children and Youth Services Network
