Irving Skill Builders meets 1st & 3rd Mondays from 6pm-7:30pm between September and May (in September we meet on the 3rd & 5th Mondays). Skill Builders clubs (recommended for children ages 6-9) are a great place to begin learning public speaking skills.
We modify the more businesslike Speakers League format of impromptu speaking, prepared speeches, and speech evaluations, by weaving in warm-up activities and learning games, to provide a fun, individually-paced, progressively-challenging environment to learn public speaking skills and meeting management.
Children must meet our Skill Builders readiness guidelines. Parent-participation may be required. Max age 12. Enrollment accepted year-round, as long as there is space in the club.
