Developing Capable People® Program
The Developing Capable People (DCP) program resulted from over 30 years of research conducted with children, families and schools in the U.S. and Canada. The data clearly showed that young people who were most at risk for dropping out of school, drug and alcohol abuse, teen suicide, teenage pregnancy, joining gangs, crime, violence, etc. were deficient in one or more of seven life skills areas. The DCP program is based upon these Seven Life Principles and provides a powerful, non-culturally biased model of human empowerment for youth and adults. The Developing Capable People program (Canadian Edition) has become very successful throughout Canada during the past ten years, with several thousand people having completed the nine session program.
The Two Day Intensive Leader’s Training Program
This training program certifies you to facilitate the Developing Capable People (DCP) program to other adults who are raising, teaching or providing support to children and parents. Over 3000 Certified Program Leaders have now been trained and are now offering the DCP program in a wide cross-section of Canadian organizations including schools, social service agencies, YM/YWCA, Boys and Girls Clubs, Big Brothers & Sisters, Scout and Girl Guides, First Nations, churches, day care and family resource centres, colleges and universities.

There are no restrictions on who may attend the two day intensive Leader’s Training Programs. One does not require a professional degree to become a Certified Program Leader. It is our belief that any caring adult who is willing to complete the two day intensive training and work toward learning the Seven Life Principles model can become an effective Developing Capable People program leader. Upon completion of the two day Leader’s Training Program, you may facilitate the program to other adults in your community.
