Boot Camp for New Dads

Practical & preparatory training for expectant dads.

Boot Camp for New Dads is a half-day workshop for expectant dads and people who identify as fathers. Trained facilitators from Maine Boys to Men lead short discussions about

  • the social constructs of gender and parenting roles;
  • responding to and resisting stereotypes;
  • caring for infants and supporting partners;
  • creating equal participation in parenting; and
  • actively shaping your role as dads.

You may attend our in-person workshop even if you have attended the national online version. We have our own content—plus, we would love to meet you! We will be scheduling the next session soon; click here and we will let you know when registration is live.

This workshop follows the COVID guidelines for where it meets. In the absence of guidelines, masks are optional and proof of vaccination is not required.

If you prefer an online experience, National Boot Camp for New Dads is providing an online workshop option for $35; registration is here. Please add Maine Boys to Men as the referral organization and click the box to share contact information with us so we can keep you informed of local programs for fathers.
