2017-08-06 North Korean refugees seeking speech coach mentors

August 6, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

TNKR is seeking speech coaches to help North Korean refugees tell their stories. Give at least two a month to a refugee to help them with creating structure for their speeches, pronunciation, vocabulary, knowledge and other things to help them present themselves publicly.

To apply: http://teachnorthkoreanrefugees.org/volunteer/
Orientation: August 6 from 2 pm
Matching: August 13 from 2 pm

Tony Docan-Morgan, Professor of Communication Studies at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse and Senior Fellow of Communication and Advocacy at TNKR will be introducing the main components of TNKR’s Track 2 program.


TNKR holds speech contests twice a year, organizes other events highlighting NK refugees, and helps prepare refugees to engage in public speaking. We don’t just invite refugees to go on stage to speak–we help them get prepared. Having a “Learning Process” so they are improving themselves is what makes the TNKR speech contests and events first-rate.

* Three NK refugee authors have participated in our program before they became authors.
* Others hope to publish books.
* Some need to give speeches for conferences or events.
* TNKR is developing a project helping refugees tell their stories in their own way.
