Public Speaking Institute

Too many young people have something to say but do not have the tools to speak in public effectively and with comfort. By building superior speaking skills, students will prepare to excel in school, attain their dream jobs, defend their beliefs and values, and become leaders in their schools and communities. During this 1 week program, students will work on everything from eye contact to posture, to body language, to articulation and tone. Students will write and develop a mini Ted Talk presentation on a topic of their choice. They start by performing a number of pre-written speeches in order to learn delivery, timing, and intonation. When students display comfort with delivery, they will begin to construct speeches based on their interests. Students learn to choose topics, establish captivating introductions, organize speech content, and deliver compelling conclusions! This is a good program for beginners and more experienced speakers alike!
