The students will celebrate the completion of Teen Speaking Skills, an eight-session course designed to empower children to become confident, effective communicators.

The graduation events will begin with the students showcasing their talent during a persuasive speaking competition. Next, the students will be honored for their achievements during the recognition and awards ceremony. The events on Aug. 24 will begin at 2 p.m. and 3:45 p.m. The event on Aug. 28 will begin at 12:15 p.m. Members of the public are invited to attend, however an RSVP is required.

Teen Speaking Skills courses are taught by Carmel Valley resident Kathleen Behrens, who is a credentialed educator and an Advanced Toastmaster. The fall Teen Speaking Skills classes will begin on Sept. 24, 25, 27, and 28.
