Communication is perhaps the most important life skill—without this skill, interacting with others can be awkward and uncomfortable. The purpose of this workshop is to teach students how to cooperate effectively in real world settings with peers, adults, parents, siblings, and friends. The program will also facilitate initiating and pursuing communication with ease and ultimately equip students with a finely-tuned modern day communication toolkit.


Topics include:

  • How to initiate and maintain conversations
  • Body language, eye contact, and attitude
  • Engaging in a dialogue vs. monologue
  • Open vs. closed questions and answers
  • Showing genuine engagement in conversations
  • Listening and caring about others
  • Coping with awkward or uncomfortable social situations
  • Eliminating effective use of junk words (ie. Like, Um Ya Know)
  • Making a genuine apology
