Building Confidence and Presence


via Public Speaking

1-Day Workshop - June 25th, 2018

Public speaking is an incredibly valuable skill we can develop in our children, but honestly it's more than that. Being able to stand up and speak up is an incredible confidence builder. And, our teens today need all the opportunities they can get to develop confidence and a strong presence. Not only will it serve them well in the classroom, it will serve them well in college and beyond. It's truly a skill that will last a lifetime. 

Over three 2-hour sessions, we're teaching a workshop designed to help teens find their confident and strong presence through learning the facets of public speaking. From 10 am to noon, on these 3 consecutive days, teens will learn through video examples, discussion, workbooks and interactive role playing. Teens aged 13-18 are welcome.
