Exposing children at a young age to public speaking will groom them to be confident communicators down the road.
Even though the benefits of excellent communication are plentiful, public speaking is still a widely underdeveloped soft skill in the educational system.
College is often where young adults have their first experience with a formal course in the art of public speaking. Wouldn’t it be great if your child had a head start in learning this valuable skill?
Preparing them early on will contribute to their success in a variety of speaking situations they will eventually face, such as class presentations, scholarship and job interviews, and special occasions that require speeches. Standing on a stage and speaking behind a lectern is usually the first image that pops into people’s minds, but there are far more common scenarios when speaking publicly will occur for children.
Certified World Class Speaking Coach Roquita Johnson runs a public speaking academy – Confident Junior Communicators – to help youth develop their speaking abilities.
The program is for youth in 7th and 8th grades.
The five-session weekly program is conducted virtually using the Zoom online platform. If you're a school or youth organization interested in an abbreviated online workshop for your students, please reach out to Roquita to discuss.
