National Fatherhood Initiative® (NFI) announces a Request for Applications (RFA) for a brand-new fellowship opportunity for 50 facilitators of the 24/7 Dad® program. Selected facilitators will join NFI staff in October 2020 to participate in a retreat in beautiful Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. NFI will consider accepting a maximum of two facilitators (staff and/or volunteers) from an organization.
