Public Speaking Progam
Public Speaking Sessions and Contest
Some believe that public speaking is the number one fear among people. Every day brings a host of opportunities that require public speaking skills.
Through it's Public Speaking Program, YLSBC empowers its members (12 years old age and older) with the ability to become articulate and confident in expressing their ideas. The bi-weekly sessions prepare members for an open public speaking contest where the winning contestants receive bursaries and numerous awards for their post-secondary education.
