To promote peer-to-peer learning and dissemination of promising practices, the Office of Family Assistance (OFA) sponsored a site exchange series in late winter and spring 2011 focused on partnerships in Responsible Fatherhood programs. During these two- to three-day exchanges, a "host" grantee--working with OFA's Technical Assistance (TA) Team--designed a site visit schedule and learning session for a small group of visiting grantees. Host agencies were selected by Federal program officers and technical assistance experts based on performance and expertise on a high-priority topic within the Responsible Fatherhood program. A guiding theme for each site exchange was the importance of partnerships, and the vital role that strategic relationships can play in promoting program quality and sustainability. This report examines the knowledge gained during each site exchange, the strategies grantees used to develop partnerships, practices used to successfully engage program participants, and the changes in practice, actual or anticipated, resulting from knowledge gained during the site exchanges.
