Calling All Fathers to “The Black Fatherhood Program”
See Details below, if interested please contact Akosua Atuahene at Akosua@sigmabetaxi.com or Office: (951) 247-1700
It is me again, Akosua Atuahene, Director of Black Empowerment & Operations at SBX Youth and Family Services. We have begun a new program called " The Black Fatherhood Program" and are always looking forward to collaborating with other great leaders of the community.
We would love to know how we can assist our African American Fathers within the MVUSD.
We are now serving fathers in Riverside County.
Our Focus is:
> Improving black infant birth outcomes and reducing black infant mortality.
> An array of interventions that are designed to work in parallel with the Black Infant Health Program Intervention model.
> Eliminating the exclusion of fathers, providing a safe space for black men to be vulnerable, and understanding their role in the family dynamic when it comes to assisting mom during the pregnancy stages and co-parenting.
This 4-6 week training program is available for existing fathers as well as soon-to-be fathers. I am more than open to introduce this to you further. Please let me know if you have any questions or requests.
