Towong Shire



Helping men become great Dads is the aim of a new program being offered in Corryong.

Titled My Dad Is AWESOME, the interactive sessions help Corryong's Dads navigate the highs and lows of fatherhood while building stronger bonds with their kids. Over four sessions in May and June, Dads will have an opportunity to have their say and learn new ways of understanding, dealing and coping with the demands of fatherhood.

Upper Murray Family Care and Corryong Neighbourhood Centre have partnered with Towong Shire Council and the State Government to develop My Dad Is AWESOME specifically for rural Dads living in and around Corryong.

Fatherhood is a job for life and this project will help men learn the skills and tactics they need to be the best Dads possible.

My Dad is AWESOME is a great way to learn new skills to meet those challenges, create great memories with your kids and meet other Dads along the way.

Whether you're a new Dad or you've been doing it for years, these sessions will have something for you.
