Hauppauge, NY – October 4, 2016 – On October 19th Dale Carnegie Training® will commemorate its 104th anniversary by launching a new annual program: The Dale Carnegie Global Day of Giving. The event will unite Dale Carnegie offices around the world as they deliver special training programs to local schools, non-profits and other charitable agencies that provide services to young people.
For more than a century, Dale Carnegie has supported global communities by transforming the lives and career potential of people through human relationship skill building. Dale Carnegie’s thriving franchise network, spanning 90 countries, is committed to helping its local communities prosper.
The Global Day of Giving will focus on providing leadership and life skills to youth and the agency staff workers who support young people. With over 100 Dale Carnegie offices worldwide participating – including centers in Argentina, Austria, Brazil, Canada, China, Egypt, England, France, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Kuwait, Mexico, Morocco, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Romania, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Vietnam and many others – several thousand young people are expected to benefit from this event.
"Over the years, Dale Carnegie Franchisees have dedicated immense time and resources to enriching their communities, continuing our founder’s legacy through deep and longstanding local relationships," says Joe Hart, CEO of Dale Carnegie Training. "We are thrilled to mobilize our unsurpassed global network as a single unit on October 19th."
The 2-3 hour Global Day of Giving workshop is personalized to suit the needs of each individual local agency, and will focus on one of three themes: Leadership Development, Stress Management, and/or Intentional Living. The goal is to provide underserved youth and agency staff workers with techniques that will improve their communication skills, strengthen their people skills, and enhance their success at work and in daily life.
"For over 100 years, Dale Carnegie has been a part of the local landscape, helping leaders at every level achieve greater influence and be more effective. We believe the human relationship principles this company is built on need to be shared widely. This initiative is a great way to provide transformational skills development to people who might not otherwise have a chance to attend one of our courses," says Hart. "We want to be sure that our young people, especially our at-risk populations, have the skills they need to succeed in life. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate our founding than by helping others make a change for the better."
