Fort Wayne UNITED to host REAL Dad workshop for high school dads
FORT WAYNE, Indiana (WANE) – Fort Wayne UNITED is partnering with Fort Wayne Community Schools (FWCS) to host the Fort Wayne UNITED REAL Dad workshop for high school fathers.
REAL stands for Relational, Engaged, Attentive, Loving Dad, and Saturday’s workshop will be an opportunity for men from different backgrounds to explore vital and relevant topics related to the life of a father, said the City of Fort Wayne. The event will feature powerful and engaging conversations, activities and opportunities to connect with FWCS Fathers.
âThe goal of the REAL Dad workshops / forums is to create a community of strong fathers in Fort Wayne who will support each other in the often difficult task of raising strong and responsible children,â the city said.
The event will take place Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon at the FWCS Family and Community Engagement Center, 230 East Douglas Ave.
Fathers, or father figures, who have a student who is currently attending FWCS college are welcome to participate and can register here. Greggory Smith-Causey, Program Director for Fort Wayne UNITED, will facilitate the workshop and provide participants with resources to help them better support their students.
