We strive to help fathers become passionate about their role in their family’s life.
For our Dads’ group we would like to partner with All Pro Dad. All Pro Dad is an initiative by Family First. This innovative and unique program is for every father. We strive to help fathers become passionate about their role in their family’s life. We strive daily to provide them every resource needed to rightly train up their children and give them a hopeful future. Our aim is to interlock the hearts of the fathers with their children and as a byproduct the hearts of the children to their dads. Some of the components of All Pro Dad are: Play of the Day, All Pro Dad’s Days, NFL Father & Kids Experience, NFL Spokesmen.
Our monthly All Pro Dad breakfasts have been thriving at the Joseph C. Shaner Memorial School. We meet before school with fathers and their child/children for a light breakfast and group lesson. Each month starts with a short introductory video to act as a discussion prompt. The dads and kids are then guided through a discussion card with questions for both to interact with one another. At the end of each breakfast is a Father Time Challenge that gives the dads and kids a challenge to complete before the next meeting. Each year in June we also sponsor a pre-Father's Day event with International House of Cuts Barbershop called Fatherhood Buzz. Fatherhood Buzz is a federal initiative. Neighborhood barbershops are a trusted space to discuss personal and public issues, ranging from family to politics, health, money, and other life issues. Fatherhood Buzz is an effort to increase awareness around responsible fatherhood and parenting issues, and increase families access to support through local barbershops throughout the country.
