YAPA Kids Public Speaking is intended to give students an introduction to effective communication and teach them how to overcome any latent fear of speaking in front of an audience. The class will include lessons in diction, voice control, emotion, gesturing, as well as a number of other concepts crucial to being a powerful orator. Students will also have the opportunity to learn about applications of a strong voice, and to develop their passion for leadership. All skill levels are welcome, and no materials besides a pen & paper and a clear throat are necessary!
