Just for Dads

Creating a better life for teen dads and their family

Teen fatherhood appears to be associated with negative consequences, both for the father and child, similar to those observed among teen mothers.

Approximately 180,000 teen boys become fathers every year in the US; most are 18 or 19 when the baby is born, but some are younger than that.

Boys who become teen fathers are more likely to have been raised in or near poverty by a single parent (usually a mom) and their parents probably had their first child as teen.

That’s why Fristers created programs specifically for teen dads.

Program objectives are to:

Increase number of dads continuing their education

Promote college or vocational training

Support fathers to gain and maintain employment

Educate dads about healthy relationship skills

Teach how to connect and care for their children
