WHAT WE BELIEVE
Fathers will be positive, nurturing and engaged members of their families and society.
- Fathers will have as much right and say in their lives of their children.
- Fathers are the backbone of society and the family unit.
- Fathers lead with a servant’s heart and be willing to make the sacrifices needed to ensure success for our children.
- Fathers must work daily to be better than the day before.
FathersLead365 is a product of an organic partnership that formed between the founders of FathersLead, Inc. - a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization - and Father's Day 365 (community organization).
Co-Founders, Akeiff Staples and Brent Johnstone, believed they could best service the community as one entity. The two fathers originally met as teammates on Temple University's football team. Years later, they worked together performing social services in Philadelphia. Recently, their passions have forged an inseparable bond on the path to improving communities and families. Both Mr. Staples and Mr. Johnstone have extensive relevant work history. Their 35+years of work experience makes them capable of engaging the community and creating worthy, trusting relationships that lead to effective programming.
The Mission of FathersLead365 is to change the face of fatherhood throughout the World by building a network of connected fathers committed to being leaders in the communities we serve.
FathersLead365 has developed programs and initiatives that promote healthy images of families in order to assist fathers with engaging their children in productive and responsible ways. Fathers will work with their own children, children in the community, and spend time amid other fathers in discussion.
