The Children’s Trust Fund recently awarded a child abuse prevention grant to the Missouri Mentoring Partnership Young Parent Program to reach out to young fathers, providing them with educational and support activities that will help them learn to be responsible, nurturing parents. Included in the increased programming planned specifically for the dads will be “Dad’s Only” events that will combine social interaction with discussion on young fatherhood topics.
At every dads event will be mentors who are volunteers, trained and supported by the MMP, who are dedicated to being positive role models for the young parents and helping them succeed in achieving their parenting and life goals.   [Southeast Missourian] [Related Southeast Missourian Article]
