24/7 Dad Fatherhood Certification Program





What is 24/7 Dad? 

24/7 Dad is the leading evidence-based national fatherhood program and is used by thousands of organizations across the nation to develop pro-fathering knowledge, attitudes, and skills of dads of all races, religions, and demographics.  The program is built on the basis that fathers can be nurturers, and for men, nurturing is a learned skill.  Throughout the program, men examine their developmental history, learn the 5 characteristics of a 24/7 Dad, and other important skills such as working with mom and proper child discipline to help them be the best dads they can be.

Evidence-Based

Independent research shows that 24/7 Dad creates statistically significant changes in pro-fathering knowledge, attitudes, and skills for fathers who participate in the program compared to fathers who don't participat in it.  In, fact, the program has undergone the most rigorous of evaluations -- random assignment.


24/7 Dad® was found to be an evidence-based program by The University of Hawaii. Click here to download the University of Hawaii Study.
