STARRY’s Fatherhood Program seeks to be Fresh A.I.R. (Advocacy, Information, and Resources) for fathers and father figures. Fresh A.I.R. is the North Star for the Fatherhood program. We believe that Fresh A.I.R. strengthens Fathers, Families, and Communities. Our desire to create a space that is Father Positive is what makes our program unique.

ONE-ON-ONE COACHING (AND COUNSELING)

Coaching is for every dad. You set the goals; we work together to build the plan and execute it. What you choose to work on is up to you, whether that’s managing success, navigating relationships, or overcoming internal barriers. The key word is WORK! One-on-one coaching typically lasts 3-6 months and requires dedication and commitment for maximum results. One-on-one coaching provides you as a father or male caregiver with a coach who will help you to sharpen your skills. Because teamwork makes the dream work, Family Coaching is also available.

HALF-TIME

Half-time is the point in the game where no matter if you’re winning, losing, or the game is all tied up, you have the opportunity to come together, strategize, and put together a winning plan. This is a time for fathers and male caregivers to come together and have open conversations about the victories and challenges of fatherhood. This is a place for fathers and father figures to freely share and discuss what it means to be a father. You’ll leave inspired and energized.

F.I.T. CAMP (FATHERS IN TRAINING CAMP)
