National Center for Fathering Provides DIY Dad Training

Matthew Musheno has served as a senior account executive at Johnson Controls in Atlanta, Georgia, since 1999, where he manages large contractor accounts. Outside of his professional work, Matthew Musheno provides charitable support for the National Center for Fathering. 

Since its founding in 1990, the National Center for Fathering (NCF) has worked to address the issue of fatherlessness across the United States. The NCF, a nonprofit educational organization, engages in scientific research currently focused on three core areas that help men be more engaged in their children's lives: research, resources, and training. 

Training initiatives at the NCF include Train the Trainer, Small Group Programs, and DIY Dad. In addition to free e-books and an extensive resource library, DIY Dad allows fathers to complete a survey known as the Championship Fathering Profile (CFP). This provides fathers with specific feedback and identifies areas of strength and weakness. Moreover, the tool produces a customized action plan that helps men reach their true potential as fathers.
