The Art of Speaking Up Workshop
October 14 & October 28
We are excited to announce our public speaking workshop happening in October 2023! The Project Voices: The Art of Speaking Up Workshop is geared toward young girls who are 8-13 years old and eager to improve their public speaking and presentational skills. This program will provide a safe space for young girls to speak freely and gain confidence and will equip students with vital speaking experience.
Every month, our workshops follow a different theme to focus on a specific aspect of public speaking. This October, we will be discussing the courage needed to speak up for your beliefs and the tools needed.
Throughout the two sessions of this workshop, students will:
Learn how to effectively communicate their ideas in different settings
Gain confidence when speaking in front of an audience
Participate in engaging activities, including impromptu speaking games and word riddles
Discover successful body language tactics to enhance their speaking presence
Learn the composition of a persuasive argument
Develop tactics for navigating thought-provoking, difficult topics and advocating for their ideas
Public speaking appears in many forms, such as reading aloud during class, collaborating with peers on a project, and communicating ideas and opinions effectively. This workshop was designed to help young students, specifically female and gender-expansive youth, develop these essential speaking skills and confidence in their ideas and abilities.
This workshop will be taught by Caroline Bae, the founder of Project Voices and an avid public speaker and debater. She has participated in competitive public speaking since middle school and was recently recognized as the 1st Place United States Speaker at the 2022 International Independent Schools’ Public Speaking Competition.
Caroline started Project Voices with the belief that all girls should be heard and their opinions valued. She created this workshop to further promote this message and help young girls develop their voices, confidence, and speaking skills.
All sessions will be held virtually on Zoom.
This workshop will consist of two sessions on October 14th and October 28th from 4-5:30 pm EST, though this time may be adjusted based on students’ needs.
