Mentees learn to make speeches

FALLBROOK – Several members of Fallbrook AAUW's Mentorship Group will be competing in a speech contest in the community room of Fallbrook Library, Friday evening, Jan. 27, 2023. The title of their speech is, "How can we advocate for women's rights?"

Mentees are chosen from Fallbrook High School's AVID program, which emphasizes the goal of attending college for at least four years. Many graduates credit participation in this contest for the self-confidence they gained which helped them to succeed in college and their careers.

Mentees and mentors attended a special speech coaching session held by the group's director, Karen Langer Baker, which focused on preparing them to continue one on one with each other. The group will meet as a whole again sometime in January to fine tune their speeches.
