United in their concern for America’s current generation of young men, Joseph Cohen, Christopher Salem and Davey Williams– all authors, speakers, and coaches – have developed a broad spectrum of resources that will provide fathers with the insight, information and tools they need to play a more engaged, supportive and influential role in the lives of their sons (the fathers of daughters will also benefit).
Our programs will help reduce bullying incidents, raise self-esteem, and decrease the rates of teenage suicide and school shootings across the United States. It is designed for socially responsible corporations and communities across the globe.
With the intention of promoting balanced living, social responsibility, and sustainable success, Empowered Fathers in Action provides workshops, educational seminars and retreats, teacher and facilitator training; consulting and individual coaching. We also recommend each of the books our team has authored.
The most important aspect that EFA will achieve is to make a positive impact on fathers and sons, and in the process, empower young people to enjoy greater self-esteem, happiness and sustainable success so they can contribute to their communites!
We are serving communities around the globe, especially those with high rates of bullying and teenage suicides, as well as public schools in districts with at-risk youth by enlisting the help of influential individuals and socially responsible corporations!
This is where it all starts! If we can begin to create healthier and happier homes, that makes an impact on the adults AND the children. It also allows that to spread into the other areas, or causes, in which EFA is making a difference.
Children who have a positive home environment will bring that to school with them. That’s taking the home, and empowering its growth into classrooms, which will have a tremendous impact on the teachers and faculty, too. They will then go and bring it out even further to their families, and their communities too!
The combination of home and classroom helps the movement reach more people in their communities. We are all in this together! This is where volunteering comes into play and helping the EFA Movement get the mission and message to more people who need it. With all three of these causes in motion, corporations bring it all together
Sixty-three percent of people working in businesses are parents. So, parents that bring the sustainable
solutions from the home, classroom and communities, will naturally bring that to the
corporations. Many issues that affect children in schools affect adults in business and life, too.
This really brings the habits and principles of EFA as solutions full circle. We rely on corporations for many things, including empowering healthy environments for their people.

The signs can be seen in bullying incidents and low self-esteem, in increasing rates of teenage suicide and in the disturbingly frequent school shootings.
These incidents are all “red flags” that call attention to one aspect of parenting that continues to receive far too little attention – the relationship between fathers and sons. The impact of fathers on the psychological well-being and social behavior of their children has been well documented.
The dangerous and extreme results of boys who are allowed to grow up without the positive bond with their fathers has been documented in school shootings, bullying incidents, and increased rates of teenage suicide.
