  5. Excellent online training for creating a Father-Friendly Organization 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Sep 2015

    I recently attended the online Father Engagement Certificate Training offered by NFI and taught by its president, Chris Brown. I thought it was excellent -- a real how-to kit for setting up and growing a dynamic and effective Father-Friendly Organization. The 5 PowerPoint webinar sessions covered an array of key elements, namely Leadership, Organizational, and Program Development, Community Engagement, 7 Best Practices with video clips of successful case studies, Marketing, Working with Moms, and Fund Development. I'll be working with my colleagues to put these vital learnings into practice in our own work locally. I highly recommend this course.
