24/7 Dad® Facilitators Retreat Agenda

Tuesday, October 6, 2020
8:00AM – 4:15PM Registration; breakfast and lunch provided.

Session 1: Staying on Course: Focus, Format, & Frequency of 24/7 Dad®
One of the best aspects of 24/7 Dad® is that you can modify its delivery to meet the needs and constraints of dads, your organization, and your program. Join your peers to share and learn how facilitators deliver 24/7 Dad® with success in different time frames.  

Panel Discussion: From Fathers to Facilitators
Fathers who have been through the 24/7 Dad® program and now facilitate it with other dads have a unique perspective on what it means to be a participant and a facilitator. Hear from these dads and be inspired by their stories.

Session 2:  Customizing 24/7 Dad®
Facilitators can customize 24/7 Dad® in many ways. Come prepared to share and learn what makes your and other 24/7 Dad® programs different and, yet, successful. Do you customize it with additional activities, videos, or other NFI resources? Let us hear how you make your 24/7 Dad® program even better! 

Wednesday, October 7, 2020

Session 3: Integrating Technology into Your 24/7 Dad® Program
NFI offers the free 24/7 Dad® To Go app for the dads you serve, but we want to hear how you innovate with technology to better reach the dads you serve. NFI President Christopher Brown will lead this discussion and also share research on the best way to use technology with dads.

Session 4:  Keep it Going…Best Practices for Sustainability
