Capacity-building is the way in which organizations build up their staff and organizational capacity to successfully run programs.

When is comes to training and serving fathers in your community, National Fatherhood Initiative (NFI) wants your fatherhood program to be the best it can be, and reach as many dads as possible. That's why capacity-building is so important and will help your fatherhood program succeed, thrive, and effectively serve fathers.

To that end, please join us for NFI's Community Mobilization Approach Workshop in Germantown, MD on January 30, 2012 where you will learn how your organization can create lasting change in your community by working to engage all sectors of society to increase the number of children who grow up with involved, responsible fathers. 

Hear from Ave Mulhern, NFI's Sr. Program Support Consultant, about NFI's work with numerous organizations in the over the years to successfully mobilize communities around responsible fatherhood. 

During this workshop you will learn about: 

• How to raise up new fatherhood champions that represent all sectors of your community

• A needs and assets assessment process you can use to jumpstart a community-wide fatherhood initiative 

• Other cities, counties, and states that have successfully implemented the Community Mobilization Approach

We look forward to you dedicating your time with us!

Why Community Mobilization? 

An organization’s fatherhood program can be greatly enhanced to improve the well being of it’s children with a community that understands the connection between father absence and the community’s negative social issues. Take a look at the statistics.

Along with research and statistics, NFI has a number of resources to help educate and empower agencies and their communities.  NFI's Guide to Strengthening Fatherhood in Your Community™ provides helpful information on how to: start your own organization, start serving fathers from an existing organization, offer fatherhood programming in your community, raise funds, and mobilize your community around the issue of father absence.  

NFI also provides customizable Capacity-Building Workshops with topics like Community Mobilization for Fatherhood Programs and Social Marketing for Fatherhood Programs. These workshops are essential if you are looking to enhance your presence and gain support from your community.  

In addition, when dads are involved from the start of a child's life they make a unique and invaluable contribution to the health of their child and the mom. For research and statistics check out Father Factor in Maternal Health and Infant Mortality.
