  • The Fathers Corps Learning Community is designed to build the capacity of male service providers to effectively engage and support fathers and increase provider understanding of the critical role fathers/father-figures play in the lives of children. Workshops focus on fathers’ role in early childhood and factors specific to the needs of men and the challenges they face in fulfilling their role as fathers. Click here for more information.

2019 Fatherhood Summit

The inaugural Fatherhood Summit hosted by the Fathers Corps on Saturday, March 16, 2019 will empower fathers and father figures by celebrating and honoring the important role fathers play in the lives of their children. The goal of the summit is to attract 1,000 fathers and father figures to engage in a safe, judgment-free, supportive space. Summit participants will attend father-focused workshops and hear from some of the nation’s leading voices on fatherhood.  We are looking for sponsors so we can expand our reach to continue the movement to empower our men as fathers, nurturers, caregivers, community role models, and leaders.
