Fathering in 15™ is unique because there's no facilitator required, and dads can go through it at their own pace.

Other Important Features

There are two very helpful, complementary resources that are part of Fathering in 15™: the Pre- and Post-Survey to measure what dad has learned, and a Certificate of Completion.

The Pre- and Post-Survey are delivered via an online survey tool. Once dad clicks to begin the survey, he will enter his name, along with the email address where the results of the survey should be sent. If you are a staff person working with a dad, you might want him to enter your email address so that you can track his results, and then forward a copy of the results to him via email.

The Certificate of Completion for dad is a downloadable PDF document. This document is editable and allows you to enter the dad’s name and date of completion for Fathering in 15™. Best of all, once you subscribe to Fathering in 15™, we will brand your Certificate of Completion with your logo so that it reflects your organization’s commitment to engaging dads.
