Sikh Presenter’s Course – Apply Today!

Dear Supporter,

Have you ever given a presentation on Sikhi? Would you like to learn more about doing presentations in your child's school? The Sikh Coalition invites you to participate in the first Sikh Presenter's Course in the DC Metro Area!

The Sikh Presenter's Course is a 3 day series of workshops designed to train Sikh community members on how to professionally deliver Sikh Awareness Presentations. The workshops will be led by trained professionals well-versed in teaching individuals effective presentation and public speaking skills. The three-day course will be held in Falls Church, Virginia from June 9 - 11.

The first and second Courses were held in New York City, and the third Course was held in Fremont, CA earlier this month.  Due to the overwhelming positive response we received from previous attendees, the Coalition is bringing the Course to the DC Metro Area.
