KYDad Academy is a 6 week, 10-module training intensive covering a range of topics such as engagement, communication, advocacy, policy, and capacity building through facilitated instructional sessions from experienced leaders, organizers, and advocates for responsible fatherhood. The objectives for KYDad Academy include training fathers to engage with their children and families, developing a core group of men to be ambassadors for father engagement across the Commonwealth, enhancing knowledge, skills, and understanding of fathers’ rights, roles, and responsibilities, equipping fathers with tools to civically engage and work closely with programs and services within their community, and helping to build a network of fathers and fatherhood supporters to help change the narrative for fathers across Kentucky.
