Dante DiBattista has worked with organizations worldwide, including businesses in Spain, charities in Brazil, and schools in Greece, to learn from and cultivate leaders who transform schools and communities. He began as a student leader at Widener University, facilitating leadership seminars for those pursuing certificates in leadership from the Oskin Leadership Institute. During this time, he met a foreign pupil who desired to launch an Urban Leadership Project in his community, with Dante developing the curriculum. As a result, Dante’s quest to travel the world and work with local authorities to learn started.
He joined the famed nonprofit Teach for America because he was motivated to give back to the community and wanted to work as a special education teacher in a Title I school. It stoked his passion for promoting educational justice and defending children’s rights in underprivileged areas. Additionally, he carried out an independent study on the school-to-prison pipeline and strategies for reducing it.

Dante DiBattista has worked all over the world, from businesses to Spain and non-profits in Brazil to schools in Greece to learn from and develop leaders who transform schools, businesses, and entire communities. He started as a student leader at Widener University hosting leadership workshops for students seeking their leadership certificate from the Oskin Leadership Institute. During this time, he met an international student who wanted to start an Urban Leadership Project in his hometown, with Dante designing the curriculum. This started Dante’s journey traveling the world to learn from and work with community leaders.
His dedication to community service led to him joining the selective non-profit organization, Teach For America, to teach Special Education in a Title I school. This sparked his passion for educational equity and advocacy for students in impoverished communities. He also conducted independent research on the school-to-prison pipeline and strategies to reduce it.
His passion for education and technical savvy inspired him to teach himself through online learning courses how to develop websites, apps, and software. This journey pushed him to pursue an opportunity to consult an international tech start-up based in Madrid, Spain where he spearheaded research to strategically develop a chatbot solution for a new eMedicine platform using artificial intelligence.
These various experiences opened doors for Dante to travel and speak to business executives, non-profit leaders, and students ranging from middle school to the collegiate level, motivating them to overcome the challenges we face, and outlining action steps to building a better future for themselves and generations to come.
