The Importance of Developing Public Speaking

The Importance of Developing Public Speaking

Why developing the confidence of public speaking is so important for children.

Communication is the backbone of any society. It allows us to form connections, influence decisions, and motivate change. Public speaking is one of the most important and most dreaded forms of communication. In the working world, public speaking is a vital skill to have. While some kids take to it naturally, others tend to be more fearful of standing and talking in front of a crowd.

Public speaking helps to progress your child in the following:

  • Improved communication skills
  • Increased self-esteem
  • Planning experience
  • The power of persuasion

As public speaking is critical to have as an adult, developing the ability as a child is one of the best ways to conquer it. At Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Conejo Valley, we value this experience and work to educate and encourage the development of public speaking confidence. We host two performance camps that help children to do just this.
