At Speak and Write, we train communication skills for organizations, but we also believe in promoting communication and literacy skills to those in need around the world.
A portion of the investment for every workshop is donated to The Girl Effect. This organization fits for both our personal and corporate mission: to help young girls around the world gain opportunities through financial support and literacy so that they can effect positive change for themselves, their families, and communities.

April 27—Speak and Write presents communication skills to high school students
On April 27, we joined other volunteers to help students at Castlemont High School in Oakland, CA understand their career options and recognize the importance of professional communication skills in the workplace. We were proud to help and were impressed by the potential of these dynamic young students.
Only one kid fell asleep, so we were fairly happy with the results!
