The Giving Fathers Voice Project is an intervention designed to develop culturally-informed parenting content modules and behavioral models designed for Black fathers/caregivers. The intervention modules will represent an innovative, much needed resource for Black fathers. With additional external funding the ultimate goal is to determine the impact of the modules/models on parent and child outcomes via a randomized pilot in a sample of Black fathers and to make modules/models video-based. The goals of the curriculum are to

Foster involvement and engagement in their parental role

Address the unique challenges of Black fathers in promoting social, emotional and cultural competence in their school aged children

Facilitate fathers use of developmentally appropriate approaches to racial/ethnic socialization and behavioral model some approaches to the racial/ethnic socialization conversations (i.e., racial/ethnic pride and preparation for bias) conversations.
