Junior Speakers League

Junior Speakers League clubs (recommended for children ages 7-9) are a great place to begin learning public speaking skills.

The club meetings are very similar in format to Speakers League meetings, with opportunities for impromptu speaking, prepared speeches, and speech evaluations, but the club Chairperson is more hands-on in JSL, making sure the members are ready for, and understand what’s going on at the meetings. 

The Member Handbook is simpler in JSL and the members have a worksheet for all speeches they give, to help them achieve the goals of the speech, for example using gestures or vocal variety or visual aids. Like Speakers League, JSL is a progressively-challenging environment to learn public speaking skills and meeting management.

There are three levels in Junior Speakers League – Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced. To move from one level to the next, members must successfully give all six speeches in that level, and do each role at the meeting (like Evaluator, Vote Counter, Timekeeper, MC, etc.) successfully, at least once, during that level. 

Although Junior Speakers League clubs are adult led, the presence of a parent or other adult aide may be required to ensure any needs are met that might arise for the member. Additionally, parents are expected to ensure that their children are prepared for their roles at meetings.

Enrollment is accepted year-round, as long as there is space in the club.

Thinking on your feet and actually expressing yourself in a organized, sincere, passionate and charismatic way are important skills that all adults should have but so few do.

About us . . . is part of Ready Set Resources, a homeschool-family-run endeavor, that began when our son was only one year old. At that time, we created our Bright and Ready activity idea cards. When our son was 10 (and our daughter, 7), he expressed an interest in public speaking, so (as we homeschoolers tend to do when there are no offerings of that sort) we started our own homeschool public speaking club, in 2008. We have loved starting clubs and helping kids all over the country.

There was so much enthusiasm from families that we wanted to share what worked, so we eventually rolled out our club method in an ebook. But what most excited us was the idea of a network of clubs that could have events together and support children around the world. That’s why, in 2011, we created the Speakers League organization. 
Now there are clubs popping up all over the world and we’ve held numerous in-person and online conferences. 
We now have on Ready Set Debate League and Junior Speakers League club curricula, and hope to start offering those materials to people who want to start these kinds of clubs soon.

So, the thing to know is, if you join one of the clubs on this website, you are joining a headquarters club for the whole shebang!
