Public Speaking Program

Program Information

Objective

Public speaking is a life skill. In order to speak clearly, confidently, and persuasively, young people must practice. This practice will help students ask questions in class, engage with peers, and give presentations. It will help them ace job interviews, and advocate for themselves in the workforce.

Students of the public speaking program will develop these skills in a fun and energetic environment.  Through a combination of games, lessons and projects, students will receive personal feedback from our instructors, learn how to organize their ideas and express them clearly and confidently!
