Honouring: FAC 2015 Father of the Year! Featuring: Winner of our Youth Mentorship Poetry Competition
Launched in 2009, FAC continues to reduce the frustrations that our young men experience and help foster the innate leadership qualities they possess. The FAC program was inaugurated from the many gun violent deaths in our communities, in an effort to promote healing and youth productivity. Since its inception, Fathers Across Cultures have supported over 7200 young men and fathers. Join us this Father’s Day Weekend in honouring the fathers in our midst. Help us appreciate the mentors who help empower our young men. Let’s collaborate to help minimize the violence and frustrations that rob our families of our young male lives.
