InsideOut Dad Fatherhood Certification Program

What is InsideOut Dad? 

InsideOut Dad® gets rave reviews from inmates and facilitators alike. When incarcerated fathers are given the vision that they play a unique and irreplaceable role in their children's lives, hearts change, men change - families' and children's lives change.  Fathering handbooks are used by dads in class and kept as a reference.

Join the thousands of jails, prisons, and reentry programs across the nation using InsideOut Dad® to give incarcerated fathers the tools they need to become involved, responsible, and committed fathers.


InsideOut Dad® is an evidence-based program, proven to develop pro-fathering attitudes, knowledge, and skills, giving fathers the necessary strategies to prepare them for release. The core program sessions feature unique exercises and research-based tools and techniques to encourage fathering from the inside. The optional reentry sessions help fathers prepare for responsibilities and challenges they will face on the outside.

InsideOut Dad® was found to be an evidence-based program by Rutgers University. Click here to download the Rutgers University Study.
