24-7 Dad is a fatherhood program used by hundreds of organizations across the nation to improve the knowledge, behavior, and skills of dads of all races, religions, and demographics. The program is built on the basis that fathers can be nurturers, and nurturing is a learned skill for men. Throughout the program, men examine their own fatherhood history, learn the 5 characteristics of a 24-7 Dad, and other important behaviors such as working with mom and proper child discipline to help them be the best dads they can be.
This course is available Monday to Friday during regular business hours. The course can be conducted in individual sessions or in group format.
