Public speaking, debate, and leadership are our passions, and we want to share our excitement and expertise with others. Many don’t realize how important these skills are in any career and in life. We are here to help change that mentality.
We want to teach people how to become public speakers in a way that is different from any other organization: through a student to student relationship. This is because we all are constantly learning from each other.
What We Do
"I've always had a passion for public speaking, debate, leadership, and negotiation. However, I feel that it is time to take the next step in terms of leadership and teach others these incredibly important skills." — Co-Founder Brendan Wu. Our goal is to not only teach those who need these skills to harness them, but to relate to them in a way that an adult may not be able to do. By having a young, and excited team, we believe that we will be able to teach in a way that is unique and more effective than many other organizations. We will teach those needing to learn the basics, to those who are more experienced and wish to refine their skills. Another unique aspect of our organization is our networking. We will strive to refer and introduce students to other speech/debate programs and organizations. By doing this, students will now have the opportunity to showcase their skills to different audiences and types of people. We want to make a difference, so that you can too.
From the basics, to tips used by some of the most talented in the world.
How to organize events, be involved in school politics, and talk with their peers.
We will have students analyze current events happening around the world.
