Project: Public Speaking
Project Leads: Vatsal Jain, Ansh Patel

As the academic season brings with it a new set of challenges, responsibilities, and skills for every student to respond to. Compelling, confident public speaking is a crucial skill that is often overlooked and under-developed in a child’s formative years, yet it can strongly impact how your child views themselves and how they develop and succeed in school. A self-assured child who can effectively address their classmates or an audience is likely to be seen in a more positive light by their peers and develop a stronger sense of self. And this acquired poise and increased command of public speaking will not only help them in school, but also empower them in any situation they encounter in life.
    If you are looking for your child to excel in his/her public speaking and develop leadership skills, you might think of taking advantage of this opportunity with no cost to you.
   These sessions are run using Toastmasters International Club framework - https://www.toastmasters.org/. Toastmasters club targeted for kids age group of 7 - 12 Years.
    These sessions are run by Vatsal Jain and Ansh Patel once a week on Tuesday.
