Strategies you can use immediately in your work with young dads. Take home messages, content, ideas that can be used immediately in your programs.

Programs that are working.  Learn from people who are running young father programs that are making a difference.

Issues that are relevant.  Get updated on the recent research and how it can be used to speak to young men in your community.

Hear from people doing the work with fathers.  There is a lot of experience out there.  Learn what is working from the ones doing the work.
