Join us Saturday, May 4th for our Spring 2019 Male Involvement Retreat at our
JCCEO Festival Head Start Center 6701 Crestwood Blvd. Birmingham, Al. 35224.
from 9:00 am - 12 noon.
"WHY FATHERS MATTER"
When fathers are involved in the lives of their children, their children learn more, perform better in school, and exhibit healthier behavior. Even when fathers do not share a home with their children, their active involvement can have a lasting and positive impact.
We'll also have a morning of workshops food, fun, games, and more.

More Info About The Male Involvement Project
The Male Involvement Project is a program designed to encourage fathers and/or significant male role models to participate in the JCCEO Head Start-Early Head Start Program activities with their children. Each year, the JCCEO Parent Involvement and Volunteer staff facilitate a brunch, an "Evening Out With Dad," and a retreat for participants. Each event features a motivational speaker, as well as support and educational information for the participants.
Throughout the program year, the participants are welcomed into each program center and encouraged to volunteer in the classrooms, read to the children, or lend their time in other ways. The Fatherhood Involvement Project also includes a "Story Telling Project," during which the participants come into the classrooms and read to the children.
JCCEO is committed to ensuring the JCCEO Head Start-Early Head Start Program is conducive to the critically-needed father/male involvement.
