Polished Pebbles Pillar: Communication

For the month of July we want to delve into Polished Pebbles Girls Mentoring Program. Many of you know that we work with girls ages 7 to 17 to prepare them for a future of success. We encourage our girls to build positive relationships and develop professional skills. Polished Pebbles does this through three pillars: Communication, Career Development, and Community. Each week we are going to highlight how Polished Pebbles uses these pillars to prepare our young women for their future careers.

Here is a description of the Communication pillar from the Polished Pebbles website:

COMMUNICATION – Our focus is mentoring girls to become strong, effective communicators in all aspects, including interpersonal communication and communicating respectfully with adults and peers.
➢ 21st Century Skill Building Blocks Addressed: Verbal Communication, Social Awareness, Problem Solving, Collaboration, Planning for Success


Microsoft gives our girls the opportunity to present on technology in a professional environment. Time to work through those public speaking nerves!


Communication skills is not only about our verbal interactions, it is also about our body language. Our girls learn proper social etiquette for formal settings.


And let’s not forget the importance of self-expression (another form of communication). We use vision boards to help our girls think through their future and express their life goals.
