The Fatherhood Project Looks to Corporates
Tuesday, 2nd October 2007 at 1:41 pm

It’s called boot-camp for new dads or more practically an expectant father’s mentoring program and one Not for Profit wants to roll it out in workplaces across Australia with corporate help.

The organisation called The Fatherhood Project has been creating programs and resources to support father and child relationships since 2003.

Since then the organisation has realised and identified that for expectant fathers there is a unique initiation into manhood that is often overlooked.

Colin George, a father of five and founder of the Fatherhood Project, says that understanding the roles and responsibilities of fatherhood, finding resilience and adapting to changes don’t just happen.

George says the statistics reveal that a high proportion of marriage break ups happen within 2-3 years of the birth of a child.

He says often these fathers-to-be don’t have access or time after work to find mentors or learn about parenting.

His expectant father’s mentoring project can be adapted to the workplace and offers corporates another opportunity to engage with staff and to tap into a resource of mentors.

Colin George says initial funding is required for training up mentors.

To find out more about the fatherhood project go to www.fatherhood.com.au.
Colin George can be contacted via email on info@fatherhood.com.au or on 02 6684 2309.
