Speakers League youth public speaking clubs are a fun, supportive environment where kids can become more comfortable and confident with public speaking. Members have opportunities for impromptu speaking, prepared speeches, peer-to-peer evaluation, and more. Enrollment accepted year-round, as long as there is space in the club.
Our goal with our Speakers League clubs is to develop the public speaking and leadership skills of kids aged 10 and up. (Serious-minded younger ones are welcome too. Click here to find out if your child is ready.) Everyone is welcome as long as they can agree to our code of conduct.
Recommended for children ages 10-17, though capable younger children may also join on a provisional basis (click here for guidelines). Enrollment accepted year-round, as long as there is space in the club.
Skim through this 23-minute, annotated, meeting-highlight video, featuring kids in the South Bay (Southern California) club from May 2015. They range in age from 8 – 14. You’ll see how Speakers League provides training not only in presentation techniques, but also in leadership, meeting management, mental agility, critical thinking, and organization.
Speakers League clubs meet for an hour and a half, twice per month, between September and May (plus our annual conference on the second Saturday in June). Members receive a 45-page member handbook with details on meetings and how to do the club roles. There are also training videos. Members are scheduled in advance for meeting roles and newer members start with easier roles like Timekeeper, and Vote Counter, as they familiarize themselves with the club. There is an adult supervisor, but the kids essentially run the meetings themselves.
As space permits, we accept new members throughout the year.
