Fatherhood Connection Webinar Series, May 25-June 22, 2017

May 22, 2017 – Join the National Center on Parent, Family, and Community Engagement for the Fatherhood Connection Webinar Series. This three-part webinar series focuses on effective fatherhood engagement. It also supports program efforts to be more intentional about engaging fathers to promote children’s learning and development and strengthening the parent-child relationship.


Program Environment and Strong Family Partnerships

In this first webinar, consider what fathers experience when they walk into an early childhood program. What do they see, hear, and feel? Presenters will discuss relationship-based strategies and share effective ways to engage fathers. Find your starting point in making improvements to program environments.


Topics for the webinar include:

  • Making program environments more welcoming to fathers through the physical space and staff attitudes and behaviors
  • Applying relationship-based practices to support strong partnerships with fathers
