  • Fatherhood: The Life Of A Father Sessions provides open dialogue on what motivates and hinders fathers/father figures in our community. During our monthly meetings we discuss the role of fatherhood to create bonds and networking opportunities. Subject-matter experts are welcome to schedule a speaking engagement at a session that will aid in building up men. Meetings are held on the 1st Thursday of every month at the Family and Youth Service Center 1120 Government St. Baton Rouge, Louisiana 7pm. You can find the Fatherhood meeting schedule on the Upcoming Events page.

  • Tips & Ties:  An initiative for kids, adolescents and adults that consists of discussions on various topics that affect young men and women today and a tie tying demonstration with distribution of neck ties. Session Topics include: Enhancing Your Greatness, Conflict Resolution, Workforce Development, Dress for Success, Self-respect/Respect  for others, Money and Time Management, Character Building, Decision making/Consequences. At the end of the session each attendee is given a free neck tie and a fun tying demonstration is conducted. We bring this session to your location at school, church, communtiy center or to  your neighborhood where the kids hang out! Contact us to schedule a session! Volunteer facilitators are needed.

  • Quarterly Solution Forums:  A Community dialogue where we facilitate open discussions for community members to share concerns and solutions about issues affecting the community and in turn educate them on available community resources, services and personal growth that can aid in self-sufficiency and restoring the community.

  • Real Men Read/Mentoring school visits: A reading initiative that is designed to deepen literacy and promote a love for reading by Fathers and Father Figures by reading to our kids/students at home and school regardless if you are the actual father or not. Men are needed to be a presence in schools to support education and be a deterrent to negative behaviors. Contact us to learn how you can volunteer at a school near your home or job!
