Date and Time, TBD

Help your peers deliver 

compelling arguments, present intriguing research projects, tell captivating stories, nail job interviews, enrich class discussions, and enjoy everyday conversation. Take pride in watching students speak with power and precision, and know that you're one of the reasons for it.

Get paid for your training time

once you complete it. As a new coach, you will be paid at Level B (skilled) student salary. You'll begin by shadowing and assisting other coaches, as you prepare to lead in- and out-of-class sessions. More experienced coaches are eligible for leadership roles, which may be compensated at a higher rate.


To become certified, coaches complete 9 hours of training, both as a speaker, and as a coach. You'll culminate your training by helping to lead an actual workshop. Each semester, coaches are required to do at least 6 hours of recertification training.
