The Kingsborough Community College CUNY Fatherhood Academy (CFA), which began at LaGuardia Community College in 2012, is a comprehensive program designed to promote responsible parenting and economic stability for unemployed and underemployed young fathers through education, employment, and personal development. Increasing familial engagement, attaining a High School Equivalency (HSE) diploma, and acquiring and sustaining gainful employment are all essential goals for the participants enrolled in the CFA. The program’s central focus is to help young fathers prepare for and enroll into college with the understanding that earning a college degree is the most effective path toward providing long-term economic sustainability for themselves and their families.
