2017-06-25 Speech Contest Orientation for Coaches
June 25 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Teach North Korean Refugees will be holding an orientation to get prepared for its sixth English speech contest on August 26, 2017.
We are seeking coaches to help refugees get prepared for the contest.
First preference is given to those applicants who fulfill all items on the application checklist in a timely manner.
TNKR’s speech contest goes beyond just being a contest.
* Refugees submit videos using their own thoughts without being coached.
* Refugees choose their own coaches.
* Get assistance with preparing their speeches.
* After the contest, they review the videos so it is a learning experience, not just a contest.
Tony Docan-Morgan, TNKR Senior Fellow of Communication and Advocacy and a professor of Communications at the University of Wisconsin-LaCrosse explains the value of this process.
