 The speech program consists of these parts:

  1.  The vision board
  2.  Extemporaneous / impromptu speaking - called Table Topics (T T) 
  3.  Two or three speeches - speech # 1 About me  see Building a Speech
  4.  Learning the art of speech evaluation
 Each student will receive the Youth Leadership Handbook

  • The goals of each meeting: A fun way for your children to learn public speaking.
  • Creating and learning how to answer those extemporaneous questions. 
  • Build speeches, present speeches and evaluate speeches.
  • Lots of emphasis on the use of filler words, such as like, and,so, also overcoming the use of hums & ah's.
  • The program is based on weekly participation. Becoming a good speaker is work and the more often the child speaks, the quicker their confidence will grow.
  • Experience growth with guest speakers, evaluations by experienced speakers, and continuing mentor-ship. 
  • At each meeting the children actively participate in evaluating each other. This will be a continuing program.
  • Our goal is to engage your child as much as possible.
