The National Fatherhood Initiative (NFI) in Germantown, Md., is offering two programs for implementation by community-based organizations across the nation, Relationships Smarts PLUS and Love Notes.  Prepared in partnership with The Dibble Institute, the programs help at-risk teens and young adults who are and are not parents learn how to create healthy relationships -- and, ultimately -- healthy families.
Organizations will use Relationships Smarts PLUS to teach teens and young adults how to make wise decisions about relationships, sex, dating, and pregnancy prevention, thus laying the foundation for them to be effective parents when the time is right, and not before.  For teens and young adults who are parents, organizations will use Love Notes to help them with one of their greatest challenges to effective parenting -- lack of relationship skills between parents -- and to make wise choices essential to building a strong family now and for the future.

“These two new offerings from NFI will help organizations that work with teens and young adults -- whether parents or future parents, dads or moms -- equip young people with the skills and knowledge they need to develop healthy relationships now and in the future and, ultimately, to be the parents their children need or will need them to be," according to NFI president Christopher A. Brown.

The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee supports NFI.
