Affirming Fatherhood Virtual Event – May 4th

The NYC Department of Youth and Community Development (DYCD) is hosting its annual New York Fatherhood Convening in recognition of Affirming Fatherhood, Building Stronger Families, Safer Communities.  On Thursday May 4 (via Airmeet) and on Friday June 2 (at SUNY Queens EOC) DYCD will join our Fatherhood participants, partner agencies, community stakeholders, and the general public in bringing awareness to and affirming the role of fathers through parenting.

Studies have shown that a father’s involvement has a considerable impact on the well-being and outcomes of their children. Young people who grow up with involved fathers experience improved mental, emotional, educational, and social outcomes, and are more likely to do better in school and less likely to be involved in teen pregnancy and the justice system.

With more than 20 interactive workshops, attendees will have the opportunity to connect with fatherhood leaders who are leading the change, gain insight, inspiration, and receive resources and support.  Please feel free to share widely – we would love for dads in our community to register and participate!
