Classroom Press Conference

The Classroom Press Conference (CPC) was created by the Dr. Dale Caldwell Foundation. It invites professionals to a school to engage in career exploration discussions with students and operates using the following steps

The CPC program takes place at a high School or college. We typically have a corporate sponsor and 10 to 20 successful professionals (role models) who donate just two hours of their time. We ask the participating role models to send a brief bio and information on their company to DCF several weeks before the program. We work with the school to teach students what a reporter does and help them develop questions. The CPC begins with breakfast and networking among mentors. Students then escort the executives to their respective classes where they will be questioned by the students. The students enhance their literacy skills by writing an article about the press conference. This unique program is fun for the mentors and a great way for students to learn about role models and career opportunities they otherwise would not know about. Each student receives Dr. Dale Caldwell’s School To Work To Success book to ensure that their learning is sustainable. Click here for more information
