Track 2 is designed for refugees who wish to focus on improving their public speaking, presentation, and writing skills. Refugees in Track 2 receive one-on-one coaching from a fluent English-speaking mentor.
Refugees in Track 2 might wish to prepare for and practice giving business or educational presentations, polish their writing in order to publish a book or essay, or improve their public speaking skills so that they can advocate on behalf of other North Koreans. Track 2 coaches will work closely with their students to outline specific goals and tailor their lessons accordingly. The TNKR Global Leadership Program, under the leadership of Senior Fellow Tony Docan-Morgan, helps refugees by giving them a structured program to learn the basics of public speaking.
