First Five Alameda County

Join the Fatherhood Partnership, a training opportunity that will launch on October 26th. This training opportunity will build the capacity of participants to effectively facilitate father-specific parent education/support groups.  Participants are required to participate in the training and evaluation activities and begin offering father-specific parent education/support groups no later than March 2019. The training calendar is below.   

If you know of programs that would benefit from this training opportunity and interested in building their capacity to serve fathers, please give them my contact information (Kevin Bremond, Alameda County Fathers Corps Administrator, kbremond@first5alameda.org). The Fatherhood Partnership will create father-specific services to better support Alameda County fathers and father-figures.
