Fatherhood dialogue continues in new effort

Shoot the Hoop, Inc., the Atlanta Community Engagement Team, and the Technical College System of Georgia Fatherhood Program are joining ranks to sponsor the inaugural Clayton County Fatherhood Conference. The conference, to be held on Saturday, April 17, 2010 will feature Congressman David Scott , Robert Johnson (stalwart proponent of the fatherhood movement in Georgia), and other guest speakers. Local family support practitioners and community stakeholders are encouraged to attend, lending voice and expertise to the conversation.

The four-hour conference of structured discussions will center around five critical areas. They are Morale (and Spirituality), Health, Education, Employment, and Public Policy. One of the goals of the meeting is to extend awareness of the crucial influence fathers can, and must have in their families, the workplace, and their communities. Another goal is to cultivate greater community and public agency collaboration for positive community impact and advocacy that supports long-term stability among fathers and families in metropolitan Atlanta, and across Georgia.

You can join this conference by reserving your seat on line at Shoot the Hoop's web site or calling Jesse Hill (CEO & Founder) at 770.892.3332 or 678.791.9892 for more information. You must reserve your place no later than April 11, 2010. It will be held at the Charles Drew High School gymnasium (6237 Garden Walk Blvd., Riverdale, GA 30274) and will run from 10:00 a.m. until 2:15 p.m.
