As Dover corporate social responsibility initiative, Dover Training Institute (DTI), is a premier, Nonpublic Postsecondary Education Commission (NPEC) authorized educational institution that provides customized training, continuing education and ongoing support services to youth and adults in underserved communities.
As the 501(c)(3) of the Dover family brand, the institute employs a caring and holistic approach that not only provides office, software and technical training, that aims to address the more complex characteristics that enable an individual to successfully adapt to the world of work, family and community. Each program is structured to provide an intimate learning environment where each participant is able to attain specific industry knowledge and workplace skills at their own pace.
DTI is an Eligible Provider under the Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act (WIOA).
Additionally, armed with a desire to proactively support Atlanta Metro teens, Dover Training Institute launched the CHOICES: Youth Leadership and Violence Prevention Program in 2005. Supported in part by Fulton County and operating from Tri Cities High School, the primary goal of CHOICES is to strengthen teen’s connection to their own identity, culture and community. Likewise, CHOICES aims to help adolescents better understand how school violence hurts both the individual and community.
Working alongside school administrators and volunteer counselors, Dover Training Institute created a curriculum that teaches students peer mediation and anti-bullying strategies so they are better equipped to handle conflicts when they arise. They also engage in leadership activities that are designed to identify and enhance their leadership potential.
