Speak Easy 1
Building Young Leaders through Public Speaking
If you’re afraid of public speaking, you’re not alone! It has been rated the #1 fear among adults but it doesn’t have to be with your child! With Grasshopper classes, students will not only learn the 6 tips to giving a successful speech, they will gain confidence through practice, interactive games and activities, improvisation and LOTS of positive feedback. Same great instructors who love to encourage and motivate both the timid and the outgoing student to achieve success. Start overcoming your fears early and gain confidence for years to come!
Each 4-week class includes two weekly fun video lessons which will come through a link sent by email at regular release dates. Your child will watch great instruction and then prepare their own content/independent application (homework) for the following 1 hour LIVE interactive community sessions (2 per week) with the instructor and classmates. These sessions will be broken out into age groups with instructors where appropriate.
emPOWER Leadership & Public Speaking Virtual Camp
Public speaking and leadership made fun… yes, FUN! Through interactive games, challenges, and activities “Survivor style”, team tribes will learn to lead and team build, “wow” an audience using speaking techniques as they prepare, practice and deliver an effective speech, and play through interactive improvisational activities. Confident leadership and communication are the #1 skills for success in life. Prepare your elementary-age child now for junior high, high school and beyond. Same great coaches as our in-person camps, but with creative adaptation to an online format which promises to get campers thinking, creating, and moving on and off the screen.
This 1-week camp meets for 3 hours each day online. But 3 hours glued to a screen is not an option for our campers! Each day will include a combination of fun videos, a live virtual community where campers will participate in lessons, activities (on and off screens), speech development (individually with a coach), team challenges (inside and out!), and “Tribal Council”. They will earn points, votes and team-build as they encourage each other throughout the week. Some activities will require extended time outside of the camp hours to further prepare and practice their speech and compete aspects of challenges. Camp will culminate with an online speech presentation and skits for family and friends.
