The Fathers First Event at Chico State will be held on April 11th, 2017 from 10AM to 3PM (see below for a detailed schedule of the class times). The event is free to all that attend, and will be held at Chico State in the BMU (Bell Memorial Union) second floor in room 203.
The BSW Student Association of Social Workers at Chico State has made an arrangement for the Center for Fathers and Families from Sacramento, CA to come to Chico State for the day to teach three classes on parenting for men, conflict management, and co-parenting. The event is titled Fathers First to advocate the importance of fatherhood in the lives of their children. The event is open to fathers, fathers-to-be, men who eventually will become fathers, mothers, mothers-to-be, and women who will eventually become mothers as well. The event is put on for both Chico State students, and the community.
The event is about three and a half hours long, and is set up so that you can participate in one or all of the classes (see below for a detailed schedule of the class times). You do not have to stay the entire three and a half hours; you can simply attend one, or two, or all three of the the scheduled 50-minute classes of your choosing.
The first class will be the parenting for men, followed by a conflict management class, and finally a co-parenting class. Each class will run for 50-minutes followed by a 10-minute break.
There will also be food and beverages which will be provided to you for free which is scheduled to serve from 1:30PM-3PM.
We ask that you show up early to the event for seating, because once the presentations start we ask that you wait until the breaks to leave the room to not disrupt the presenters.
On completion of a class you will also receive a certificate of completion for that course.
We thank you for your interest in the event, and hope to see you there.

Please come early for registration, and coffee.
Parenting for Men: 10AM-10:50AM
Conflict Management: 11AM-11:50AM
