At Head Start Public Speaking For Kids, we encourage kids to talk about the ideas that are important to them and why they’re important! And this is where the awesomeness happens. Kids who take public speaking take more chances. They ask for what they need. They speak up for themselves and others. They become leaders.
We also confront fear in fun and unforgettable ways. When kids learn to focus on what fear is, how it feels and what pushing through it is like, they know they can do it in all areas of their lives. This translates to taking more chances in life and taking more chances always means more success! We encourage them to reach out to people they might not have considered before to learn more about others. Listening to the stories of other kids, adults and experts in the fields they are interested in expands their world exponentially. It develops compassion, awareness and social circles!
And of course, we teach the crucial tools of public speaking. Not just to audiences but one on one. Kids will learn how to introduce themselves with a good handshake, implement eye contact, body language, variety in vocals and the expansion of vocabulary. They will learn how to create a good presentation, how to tell a good story, and how to speak on the spot. They will learn to give feedback in an encouraging way, become better listeners and develop leadership skills. And most of all, they will have fun doing it!
Our curriculum has been tested over the years. Studied world-changing leaders, speakers, educators, entrepreneurs and artists and implemented this knowledge into the curriculum.
The entire Head Start curriculum spans four years. Kids may join for a term or complete the entire curriculum based on their needs and desires.
Head Start Public Speaking For Kids has won a Business Excellence Award and has helped hundreds of kids walk through their fear and into their confidence.
