Joan Dale
RSVP, The Grandfathers Group, Alexandria, VA
 

Joan Dale is the volunteer coordinator of The Grandfathers Group, a mentoring initiative of the Retired & Senior Volunteer Program and The Campagna Center in Alexandria, VA. The mission of The Grandfathers Group is to promote and enhance positive youth development for young African American males whose fathers are absent from the home by recruiting senior male mentors to offer a stabilizing influence through serving as positive role models. This intergenerational approach to mentoring impacts the external and internal developmental experience of young males by providing a supportive framework of empowerment, encouragement and esteem-building activities focused on character education and life skills.

Before becoming the coordinator of The Grandfathers Group, Ms. Dale worked for 11 years as a program manager for the Fairfax County Community Education Department’s Foreign Language Enrichment Program for elementary school students.

During the past twenty years, Ms. Dale has been an active community volunteer in both Alexandria and Fairfax County, VA serving as elementary school PTA President and volunteer on various middle and high school committees; serving ten years on the Campagna Center Board of Directors; and serving in various roles at Baptist Temple Church, as well as her neighborhood civic association.
