...to communicate well. Take a tip from many professional societies, and consider offering communications training -- for speeches, presentations or media interviews -- to young people involved in your organization as student members, volunteers, youth partners or youth board members. You'll not only wind up with enthusiastic spokespeople, you'll be helping to grow an organization of good speakers from the earliest stages (just imagine how much more effective they'll be years from now with early training). We've trained college and high school students to give presentations and interviews and seen impressive results. Give it a try in 2007!
