The Heroes Journey.

Fathers in Tech takes fathers on a transformative journey that increases the quality of each father’s interactions with his children and loved ones, while also providing economic growth and family empowerment opportunities.

Using a unique approach of social interventions combined with workforce skills development, CYEP is able to harness every father's potential and unlock the inner strength needed to not only compete but succeed in today’s society.

We are a powerful engine of hope set on “leveling the playing field” for underserved fathers by providing them with access and resources that have traditionally not been available to them.

Fathers Are Important.

Some description text for this item

Experience has proved that when fathers have a strong relationship with their child, the impact on that child’s life is undeniable. CYEP is committed to providing fathers with the power they need to not only be present but to also make a difference.

Through Fathers in Tech, CYEP offers support services to males to help them become responsible, nurturing and informed fathers who are positively engaged in their child’s life. We also understand that having the resources to provide for your family is essential to a father’s confidence. Fathers In Tech also prepares males with education, workforce development, technical and leadership skills to enter into the knowledge/skill economy and secure a rewarding career that changes the trajectory of their life and their family’s foundation.

Our goal is to build the skills of disenfranchised fathers by unlocking their value, equipping them with resources to provide financially and connecting them to industries in order to thrive.
