DCLI Is Built To Help Young People Build Their Business Ideas
DCLI recognizes that entrepreneurship is a mindset and not just the act of starting or running a business. We support the development of this entrepreneurial mindset as well as understanding the development of a new business. The objective is encouraging young people to think about ways to create a livelihood and do so in a manner that creates a positive impact (economic and otherwise) on our community.
DCLI entrepreneurship clubs utilize curriculum-based training to connect students to local entrepreneurs and build relationships with formal entrepreneurship organizations at the state and national level.
