Bob Seger Sponsors Dale Carnegie program at Children’s Village for the second year in a row!!!

Bob Seger has again sponsored the Dale Carnegie Teen Program at Children’s Village. Through his generosity, he is bringing life-changing skills to at-risk teens at Oakland County Children’s Village. The first class of 12 at-risk teens graduated from the Program in June 2016 with inspiring results. They learned public speaking and decision-making skills. Their self confidence grew every session. Most importantly, the students learned to replace negative attitudes with positive thoughts and actions.
