The DCF Job Strong program provides trauma, literacy and health informed job training and placement for the long-term unemployed in small businesses. We reduce poverty by placing DCF trained individuals in temporary jobs that lead to sustainable full-time positions paying a living wage.
Tragically, many young people lack exposure to career opportunities. DCF School To Work Day provides opportunities for students to visit companies and gain exposure to careers they otherwise might never know about. It was created in 1994 by Dr. Dale Caldwell and has taken place in 11 countries and 80 US cities.
We believe that the only way to end poverty is through changing the mindsets of leaders. Most people who are suffering under the weight of poverty are there because of where they were born or unfortunate things that have happened to them. We created the DCF Class Game Simulation to help leaders understand first-hand how random poverty is and how important it is to eliminate it.
