Dads’ Quotes

Through John Badalament’s (The Fatherhood Project) training staff learned a practical approach to engage fathers and male role models in different aspects of programming. John reinforced the overall positive impact of male involvement in the healthy development of young children. I would recommend this training for all agencies who serve young children.

As a twenty four-year old father of four, I got a lot from this class…things I haven’t known because of my inexperience.
TFP Incarcerated Dads Program attendee, Massachusetts Correctional Institute at Concord, MA
John’s training on engaging fathers was funny, thought-provoking and essential for organizations that serve children and families. He provided the audience with real world examples of what it means to be a modern dad, and left our staff inspired to try new and innovative ways to engage and acknowledge the father’s enrolled in our program.
