Programs at Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City
Public Speaking, Character & Leadership Development
When children learn the basics of public speaking and debate, they’re empowered to positively influence their community.
Kids who can express their wants, needs, opinions, and ideas are more likely to become productive, responsible citizens and successful leaders. Our Public Speaking, Character and Leadership Development programs empower kids to positively influence their peers and communities through leadership and communication skills.
We also help them register to vote and take an active role in the democratic process. By learning how to use their voice for good, kids build self-esteem and discover the potential to not only change their world, but the world at large.
