Becoming a DI Team Manager can be one of the most rewarding experiences you will have as an adult volunteer. You get to witness the growth of your team and the amazing solutions they develop, firsthand. Along the way, you learn how to build teams, teach creative problem solving, and form lasting relationships with your team members and other adult volunteers.
Unlike any other organization Ive come across, I see that DI teaches extremely valuable real-world skills that will give my kids, and the kids on my team, a major head-start in life. They dont get these valuable skills in school and very few other organizations are as effective at teaching and encouraging them. More than ever, the engine of our economy is American Ingenuity and I want my kids to enter the working world with strong skills in this area. Being part of DI is very satisfying and worth my time. Ive developed a much deeper and meaningful relationship with my kids (and other DI team members) through DI. DI has prompted some great kitchen table discussions with my kids on very practical real-world issues. Its also allowed me to play a major increased role in their lives and in their development that I know they value.-Scott Dalgleish
