Promises2Kids welcomed new and returning members of the Guardian Scholars Advocates for Change group last week at the Promises2Kids office! This specialty group helps students develop their public speaking skills and develop their own advocacy as they prepare for optional speaking opportunities like radio, TV, and events.
For our first meeting, Promises2Kids’ CEO & COO, Tonya Torosian, & Stephanie Ortega, were on hand to welcome the class of ’22 -‘23 and talk about why it is so valuable to have advocates within Guardian Scholars.
Second-year Advocates for Change member, Brittney, shared a little about her experience in the group last year, some insight into what it’s like to participate in media, and how the training she received benefited her.
The class then got to know each other with some introductory speaking exercises and each advocate took turns presenting to the class.
We look forward to a great year!
