REDUCING POVERTY THROUGH ENTREPRENEURSHIP & JOB CREATION
The Dale Caldwell Foundation (DCF) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded to reduce poverty and inspire young people by celebrating accomplished individuals. DCF is primarily focused on three activities:
First, we are the fiscal agent for the Black Excellence Alliance (BEA). Second, we are leading the national Entrepreneur Zone (EZone) program. Third, we are supporting the operations and development of the Black Entrepreneurs Hall of Fame, the Black Executives Hall of Fame and the Black Inventors Hall of Fame.
Connecting Students with Role Models
The Classroom Press Conference program teaches literacy and inspires students to consider exciting career opportunities. Dr. Dale Caldwell created the CPC program in 1997 and has seen first hand how this program can get students excited about careers in writing.
Students play the role of a reporter interviewing an interesting Role Model. We often follow the CPC program with the School-To-Work Day (STWD) program where students visit a company to experience the world of work.
Engaging Youth with Career Exploration
Welcome2Work (W2W) is a book, and series of student forums, designed to engage youth in career exploration activities. Students participate in a series of Youth Workshops and forums. The program is a component of the Dale Caldwell Foundation and was written by Matt Stevens.
Matt is passionate about teaching and counseling adolescent students, and specializes in designing curriculum that addresses critical thinking, soft skills and decision making. His books are used in over thirty school districts throughout the United States and Canada.
Leading the National Entrepreneur Zone (EZone) Program
An EZone is a poverty-reduction program located within an economically challenged community that provides support for entrepreneurs and job training for residents.
Inspiring Black Excellence
We’re supporting the operations and development of the Black Entrepreneurs Hall of Fame, the Black Executives Hall of Fame and the Black Inventors Hall of Fame. These innovative organizations, founded by Dale Caldwell, inspire Black excellence and immortalize accomplished people who have been overlooked in the history books because of their race.
