“Building Bridges of Support for Father’s Everywhere”
Many fathers want to be there for their children as dads, but unfortunately, too many of them fall by the wayside and give up on their children when confronted with obstacles and challenges. While there are economic, political, and social factors that greatly contribute to the epidemic of absent fathers in America, the Fatherhood Support Network believes that by creating a network of men supporting other men fewer fathers will abandon their children. Thus, our primary objective is to train Fatherhood Mentors across the United States to provide one-on-one mentorship and other outreach services to fathers in need of support, encouragement, and guidance in their local communities.
How to Become a Fatherhood Mentor?
1) Complete and Submit an Online Application (CLICK HERE!)
2) Complete a Criminal Background Screening Online
3) Attend a one day 8 hour Training facilitated by the Fatherhood Support Network.
Training’s are held in person in the city where the volunteer mentor resides or in Las Vegas, Nevada where the Fatherhood Support Network’s headquarters are located. The one day certification training’s are generally held on Saturdays but can be scheduled on other days that may be more convenient for individuals interested in complete our mentorship training.
*All Fatherhood Mentorship Training’s are conducted in person.
4) Once Fatherhood Mentorship Training is completed:
Provide mentorship to dads in need of support, guidance, and encouragement by making contact at least once a month (by phone or in person).
Spread the word in your local community that support is available for dads who are experiencing challenges and obstacles to maintaining an active role in the lives of their children.
Provide Monthly and Quarterly Updates to the Fatherhood Support Network about your mentorship activities
Criminal Background Screening Online (approximately $60 – $34 plus applicable state access fees)
Registration Fee per training participant ($49)
The registration fee covers the cost of the Trainer/Facilitator and the cost of materials (Handouts; Binder; and Copy of our book “24 Million: Challenges and Solutions for Alienated Fathers in America”).
Individuals who travel to Las Vegas (where the headquarters of the Fatherhood Support Network is located) are responsible for all related travel costs including, at minimum, the cost of their flight, lodging, and meals during the entire length of their stay. Training’s held in the city of Las Vegas can be conveniently scheduled on weekends or during weekdays.
For individuals requesting to attend a training in your local city, the registration fee is still $49 per participant/per person. However, the Fatherhood Support Network can not guarantee that funds will be available at the time of your request for the Fatherhood Support Network to incur all travel related costs to conduct the training in your city.
