TIPS for Teen is BACK in 2021 with a new format which will allow teens to learn, grow and connect even more than previously! The TIPS session will now be spread out over two weeks, where the first week will entail an interesting conversation with a guest speaker. Then, the following week, participants will continue the discussion among themselves (without a speaker), writing and sharing their TIPS letters as a tool to explore the topic more.
For this week, we will be having an conversation with Monica Cortés Viharo on Public Speaking & Performance in Everyday Life. on March 23rd, 2021. The follow-up session for this conversation will be on March 30th, 2021.
