The Manhood Tree formed a collaboration with Rise Up and MAKERSPACECT for the Fatherhood in Place program. MAKERSPACECT provided 20 six month scholarships to fathers to learn all of the trades at the MAKERSPACECT site. The trades include, woodworking, welding, 3-D printing and much more.
"Our goal is to get a Fatherhood Pole in every state in the United States..."
The initial plan for the Fatherhood in Place initiative was to create 5 fatherhood based sculptures that will be placed in locations all over the City of Hartford. After taking a few classes and brainstorming, we came up with The Fatherhood Pole. The Fatherhood Pole is a collection of positive words and phrases on signs and then placed on a pole. Each pole will be created from scratch at MakerspaceCT. Our goal is to get a Fatherhood Pole in every state in the United States; however, we will start with getting Fatherhood Poles all over Greater Hartford. If you are interested in having a Fatherhood Pole at your location, contact us. Also, if you would like to take a picture with the Fatherhood Pole, visit us at 111 Gillett Street, Hartford, CT and send us the picture to add to our slideshow.
