The Fresno County Preterm Birth Initiative is partnering with Fresno Barrios Unidos on “Keeping It Real”, a 12-week leadership enhancement program for African American fathers or young men interested in The Noble Youth curriculum. Topics include building knowledge of leadership skills, healthy relationships, culture and healing, goal setting and purpose, maleness and manhood, reproductive health, partner violence, stereotypes and community engagement. Upon completion, participants will receive a certificate and stipend. The program takes place each Tuesday from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at Legacy Commons (2255 S. Walnut Ave.). The Central California Centers for Health and Human Services at Fresno State is also a program sponsor.
