Boot Camp for New Dads is a unique father-to-father, hospital based and community-based workshops that inspires and equips men of different economic levels, ages and cultures to become confidently engaged with their infants, support their mates and personally navigate their transformation into dads.
In the weeks before their new baby arrives, men attend Boot Camp workshops to better prepare themselves to be the father their newborns need. Women over two feet tall are not invited to Boot Camp! As you may imagine, these workshops – taught by other experienced fathers – are especially valuable to those new fathers who did not have a strong male role model growing up. Currently, about 20 hospitals in Illinois have participated in BCND.
IFI is hoping to add a dozen more Boot Camp locations in the coming year.
