Public Speaking Program


Program Structure

Our program is designed to help children develop their confidence, communication skills, and creativity through public speaking.

Our classes include a mix of improvisational games, planned speeches, and personalized feedback to help each child grow at their own pace. We believe that every child has something valuable to say, and we work to create a supportive environment where every student feels comfortable sharing their ideas and expressing themselves.

At the end of each unit, each child will have the opportunity to showcase their progress by delivering the speech they have been practicing to their classmates. Our goal is to help each child feel proud of their accomplishments and confident in their ability to speak in public.

Build confidence with personalized feedback and support from teachers/peers.
