McDaniel, Marla; Simms, Margaret C.; Monson, William; de Leon, Erwin
Urban Institute
Knowing the economic challenges young fathers without postsecondary education face in providing for their families, New York City's Young Men's Initiative launched a fatherhood program housed in LaGuardia Community College in spring 2012. The CUNY Fatherhood Academy (CFA) aims to connect young fathers to academic and employment opportunities while supporting them through parenting classes and workshops. This report summarizes Urban Institute's qualitative evaluation of the program. The evaluation, completed under contract with the New York City Center for Economic Opportunity, focuses on CFA's design, implementation, and participant outcomes in the four cohorts served between March 2012 and December 2013. Appendices include: (1) Study Methods; (2) CFA Program Description; and (3) Interview Discussion Guides. [For the executive summary, see ED559327.]
