More Details:

Over the next 8 sessions, all participants are expected to give at least 3 speeches, and give written evaluations of their peers on a weekly basis. Participants will be assigned a project at the end of each session

If participants engage fully, at the end of the program there should be a noticeable difference in their presentation style and self-confidence. Many former participants say that the program helped them to do better in school.

Speech contests are a part of the program and are used as a motivating tool. Small prizes are given to contest winners. At the last session, parents and guests are invited to come to the program.

1) How to organize a speech
2) How to make eye contact with their audience

effective presentation
