A few weeks ago, we asked 24/7 Dad® and InsideOut Dad® program participants and facilitators to submit an optional pledge that fathers participating in these programs could recite before or after each session.
We received a variety of unique and inspiring pledges. So many in fact, that while we selected a winner, the final pledge we present to you combines the very best of the "heart and soul" of many of the submissions we received.
Read on to learn the final pledge and the fatherhood facilitator who submitted it.
When individuals make a commitment - and make it publicly - they are more likely to remain committed. And that's what we hope for the dads you serve. That they pledge to being an involved, responsible, and committed father after learning they are irreplaceable in their children's lives.
Without further delay, the final pledge is...
24/7 Dad® Pledge
InsideOut Dad® Pledge
About the submission winner...
We were inspired by one submission in particular which helped provide the pledges you see above.
Name > David Asbery
Title > President and Founder/Fatherhood Facilitator
Organization Name > Fixing Fathers Inc.
Organization State > Connecticut
Fatherhood Program > 24/7 Dad® Program
Imagine the dads you serve saying this commitment pledge...
- At the start of the program
- Before each program session
- At the conclusion of the program
- Or at a graduation ceremony for completing the program
Facilitators could have fathers sign these powerful pledges to show their commitment to the programs, to fellow dads attending, and to their own families.
