class description

We face a leadership crisis. Technology has replaced interpersonal communication skills with a white noise of text on hand-held screens and devices. The solution to this crisis is self-confidence. Confidence in spoken words, thoughtful messages, and engaging actions.

Jackie has spent 30 years mentoring youth, and helping them gain confidence in effective expression, interpersonal communication, and leadership. She offers an 8-week class, where youth identify their potential to be powerful communicators and exceptional leaders. They’ll improve in public speaking, active listening, effective expression and interpersonal communication. They will develop foundational qualities of influential leadership.
