Oakland County Children’s Village Foundation is pleased to announce that Bob Seger has graciously offered to fund Dale Carnegie Teen Workshop for Children’s Village teens. What do Bob Seger and Dale Carnegie have in common? Both are playing a crucial role to bring needed life skills to troubled teens this summer, through the Dale Carnegie Teen Program at Children’s Village in Pontiac this July.

The Dale Carnegie Teen Program has 3 main benefits:
  • Build self-confidence and maintain a positive attitude
  • Learn how to manage stress and focus in times of challenge
  • Build interpersonal skills
Recognizing the benefit this program would have to the teens at Children’s Village, Bob Seger has graciously offered to fund this entire program for the month of July. Thank you Mr. Seger!

​Teacher’s Pet:

An intervention program that pairs troubled youth with hard-to-adopt shelter dogs for a multi-week workshop in positive, reward-based dog training and behavior modification in an effort to make the dogs more adoptable.

The three season Kennels are complete, comfortably housing up to six dogs in need of basic socialization and obedience training. The dogs will be trained by Children’s Village residents under the watchful eye of Teacher’s Pet volunteer staff. Upon successful completion of their training the dogs will be available for adoption. During their stay at Children’s Village the dogs will be sheltered and cared for by CV staff and residents.
