Besides being the "Only Public Speaking Club for Children and Young Adults in
Alabama", Speech Crafters demonstrates that public speaking is a skill that is best learned by doing. Speech Crafters gives its members, ages 8 - up a chance to develop and
improve their communication skills at every meeting.
It's kind of thrilling to see kids, new to public speaking, rise and speak on a
topic without preparation (we call these Impromptus), present prepared speeches, and present evaluations of their peers. They become engaged and involved with the success of the meeting, taking
on the varied roles, e.g. tracking the times of the speakers, counting filler-words, such as, “um,” “like,” and “you know,” selecting and presenting poetry, or jokes, or counting votes. At every
turn, members take responsibility and stretch their abilities, and are rewarded for their effort and progress.
The purpose of our Speech Crafters Club is not to create public speakers, but to create empowered
members who can voice their opinions in their communities and beyond.
Speech Crafters shows you exactly how to make that happen.
Why Speech Crafters?
Social phobias often start with shyness in childhood or early adolescence,
and progress during adolescence, according to scientific studies. Bypassing or conquering a fear of public speaking can position children to succeed on many levels in life. By deciding to enroll
in a Speech Crafters Workshop or Club you are giving a gift not only to the kids that participate in the program, but also to the future organizations these kids will be involved with, for they will
be confident and poised leaders of the future.
