Public Speaking and Debate


From building confidence, improving communication, and increasing critical thinking skills to better preparing students for college—speech and debate activities provide life skills vital to a young person’s success in the future. Utilizing these skills inside and outside of the classroom teaches students the value of critical thinking, the ability to clearly articulate thoughts and ideas, to answer questions logically with clarity, and to think on one’s feet. Additionally, students develop interpersonal skills such as conflict resolution, assertiveness, and listening to peers. These important life skills empower youth to become engaged citizens, skilled professionals, and honorable leaders in our society.

Public Speaking Summer Camp

“He who wants to persuade should put his trust not in the right argument, but in the right word. The power of sound has always been greater than the power of sense” - Joseph Conrad

Establishing good public speaking skills is crucial to a variety of tasks. No matter what field of work one enters in, public speaking allows one to reach the new heights. Whether it be presentation or discussion, confidence in public speaking is essential to the successful communication and persuasion of your thoughts and ideas.

Students who enroll will be challenged to speak on the spot, trained to deliver effective speeches, and taught the art of effective communication. Covering a wide range of topics such as the art of compelling word choice to critical body movements, they will be immersed in the world of public speaking with other students who also inspire to improve their public speaking skills.
