The Work of the Nova Institute
Parent Education

The Changing Face of Parenting Conference Series

Shortly after its inception, the institute organized the first annual Changing Face of Parenting Conference in the Washington D.C. area.

This highly successful conference served as a parenting resource for mothers, fathers, foster parents, childcare professionals, and other educators for seven years.

Our conference attracted participants from as far away as Chapel Hill, N.C.; Princeton, N.J.; Charlottesville, Va.; and Pittsburgh, Pa.


Fathering Workshops

The Nova Institute continues to offer fathering workshops around the country. These workshops allow dads to gather and speak openly about the challenges of being a father in contemporary society. This valuable time together is spent reflecting on the experiences that shape our parenting - what it means to be a father, what it means to be a man, and also what it means to be a son.
