Since 2012, CFUF’s Practitioners Leadership Institute (PLI) has been empowering, educating and strengthening practitioners who are bringing new ideas and fresh solutions in the areas of responsible fatherhood, workforce development and family strengthening. PLI’s eyes are on the Baltimore-area grassroots practitioners who are fearlessly serving our community, striving to better the world that serves Baltimore’s Boys & Men of Color (BMOC).
PLI takes your brilliance and cranks it to the next level. Through our 7-month cohort, your eyes and mind will be opened to new ideas, and you will find that what you thought was your capacity for leadership was only the start.
Since its inception in 2012, PLI has guided leaders like you to create great things, across the country and beyond. In 2018, we focused our efforts on home, and are now empowering grassroots practitioners in our own backyard.
PLI is here beyond what you’ve learned during the Academy experience. In fact, we are here year-round, offering hands-on training and support in the fields of responsible fatherhood, healthy relationships and workforce development to practitioners just like you.
Dreams. Heart-driven initiatives.
Today’s leaders are looking for the tools to make their plans reality, and the PLI Academy is here to facilitate that with meaningful, direct dialog and training. Are you ready? Because PLI and CFUF need people like you, today and for the future.
