Still, Corey Lennore says he wanted to learn how to be a best father he could be.

“I always consider there’s room for improvement. I’m not perfect, and we could unequivocally advantage from this program,” he says.

The Dovetail Project has been a godsend, he says: “I’ve never been around so many immature black group my age but drama.”

Sheldon Smith combined Dovetail Project 7 years ago. His program’s idea is to give immature African-American fathers a superintendence they need to take caring of their children.

“When fathers aren’t involved, a odds and outcomes around children being successful or being jailed or unwell in propagandize and teen pregnancy — all of that information skyrockets,” Smith says.

Facilitator Vernon Owens covers a lot of belligerent in 12 weeks. He advises students on all aspects of child care. Dovetail connects a immature group to preparation and pursuit training so that they can yield for their sons and daughters.

“They get a stipend, a job, GED or a trade once they finish a program,” Smith says.

Lennore says they also get something else from one another: encouragement.  “We motivate any other. We do pursuit searches together. It’s a good thing,” he says.

At Dovetail Project, any day is Father’s Day.

Since 2010, scarcely 300 immature group have been by a program.
