Description

The DMV Fatherhood Collaborative is proud to announce our 1st Annual Fatherhood Symposium! This event will provide powerful speakers, easily accessible educational resources, and workforce development opportunities to help strengthen and encourage the male spirit, highlight the importance of men’s health and safety, and increase the involvement of fathers in the lives of their children.

The Collaborative was created to educate, uplift, and empower young fathers to recognize their value and the importance of their presence in their families and communities. We are dedicated to helping fathers obtain increased access to their children through working with the family and criminal courts, along with local organizations that offer legal services, counseling, family reunification, and other needed referrals.

In keeping with our theme, "Empowering Fathers: Recognizing Your Value - Knowing Your Rights," we will gather fathers of all ages and area professionals to discuss the following:

  • Custody Issues / Child Support

  • Legal / Navigating the court system (criminal & family courts)

  • Parenting Skills / Single Parenthood

  • Baby Mama Drama / Blended Family Issues

  • Health / Substance Abuse / Counseling & Mental Health

  • School / Housing / Community Involvement

  • Workforce Development/Finance (obtaining and maintaining employment)

  • Education / Training

  • Domestic Violence Prevention / Awareness

Please join us for this FREE event where there will be great speakers, an awesome lunch, prizes and raffles! The
symposium will provide powerful speakers, easily accessible educational resources, workforce development opportunities to help strengthen and
encourage the male spirit, highlight the importance of men’s health and safety, and increase the involvement of fathers in the lives of their children. Come out and support The DMV Fatherhood Collaborative as we seek to fulfill our vision of motivating and empowering men to become better fathers and contributors within our community! If you are a
community service provider, faith based organization (church), employment & training entity or fatherhood/men's health advocate- we expect to see you there!

So whether your kids call you "father" or "dad"- and those males who frequently serve in the supportive role of father - mark this event on your calendar! Please bring your friends, or invite your entire male network to come share in this historic event! We look forward to seeing you!

If you have questions about the event, or are interested in being a speaker or an event sponsor, please contact us at info@obf4u.org or visit our website at www.obf4u.org.


This event is proudly coordinated in partnership with Prince George's County Board of Education Member, Curtis Valentine and the #FatherhoodForum!
