2020-06-14, Track 2 Orientation (session 1)
June 14 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
On August 30, from 2-5 PM, the Teach North Korean Refugees Global Education Center (TNKR) will be holding its 11th English Speech contest. North Korean refugees will be giving original speeches in English.
To get prepared, participants work with speech coaches to help them sharpen their speeches. We will be holding an online orientation on June 14th from noon-2 PM.
This is a super special opportunity, as volunteers work directly with North Korean refugees getting prepared to speak in the contest. If you have wanted to volunteer with TNKR, but the three month commitment was too much, then this is a great opportunity for a short-term volunteering opportunity.
Here’s the Zoom link. (this will be the second of three Zoom calls that day) Because we will be jumping right into the orientation, if you arrive late then you may not be added to the call.
We give first preference to TNKR Members (it is easy to join!), but all invited to apply.
Some previous winners of the contest include:
Sungju Lee, author of “Every Falling Star: The True Story of How I Survived and Escaped North Korea.”
Eunsun Kim, author of “A Thousand Miles to Freedom: My Escape from North Korea.”
Cherie Yang, TV personality and TEDx speaker.
Eunhee Park, TV personality and TEDx speaker.
Check the Track 2 application page for more details and latest updates.
Orientation session 1 is scheduled for June 14th from 12 noon
Orientation session 2 is scheduled for June 27th from 12 noon.
