Start date: 2/21/24
Time and date: every other Wednesday from 6:30-7:30 pm
Length: (4 weeks)
Where: in-person, at our Ramsey location

We will be working on:
1) interview skills
2) building meaningful conversations
3) cultivating self-confidence and assertiveness in various social settings
4) gaining public speaking confidence

We look forward to seeing you!
