What is the Fatherhood Institute?The Fatherhood Institute is an intensive three-week program geared toward unemplyed fathers. Located at Clark State Community College’s Leffel Lane Campus, the program provides mentoring, self-assessments, resume development and job training to fathers in a class setting.
Representatives from various community partners visit classes to share information and assist participants in locating resources available within the community. Classes are taught by a variety of skilled practitioners who combined, have over 25 years of experience training, teaching and reaching out to their communities. Our facilitators/practitioners are impassioned to help move fathers toward a new direction in their lives. As a pivotal part of the program, fathers will complete a comprehensive self-assessment that matches their interests and skills with compatible careers and set goals for sustainability.
