About the Practitioners Leadership Institute
CFUF's DAD MAP and BluePrint Curriculum are used in programs and organizations across the country.  The PLI Academy is an 8-month fellowship program open to mid to senior-level human service practitioners with a minimum of 5 years in their field. Held annually in March the PLI Summit provides opportunities to connect, learn and share with a national network of field leaders.   The Community of Practice offers a rich selection of webinars, digital publications, and other resources.  The PLI Academy Application for Cohort 5 will open this spring 2016. 

Each year, the Center for Urban Families in Baltimore, MD is visited by social service and community-based organizations from across the country that wish to replicate its program models, by policy makers and community leaders interested in learning how responsible fatherhood, family services and workforce services directly affect the lives of those that participate, and by media outlets interested in featuring the organization’s successes.

Formally established in 2011, the Practitioners Leadership Institute (PLI) is a nationally focused initiative designed to provide Responsible Fatherhood, Workforce Development and Family Strengthening practitioners with experiences, skills and information that will strengthen their ability to improve outcomes for low-income fathers and families, impacting black male achievement.
