Feeling Persuasive? Or a bit argumentative …
WMS would like to start an after school DEBATE AND PUBLIC SPEAKING club in January. We are looking for an adult who is interested in volunteering or coaching the program once or twice a week between 2:30 and 4:30.
This club will be a fun opportunity for students and the volunteer to challenge themselves while gaining experience in public speaking, improve core reading, writing and listening skills and developing confidence in higher-level thinking and leadership abilities (and hopefully making a few friends along the way).
Interested in Volunteering or Coaching? Please contact Ms. Sigrid Batara at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 206-252-2562 for more information or if you know someone who might be willing to coach.
