Purpose

To Empower youth to become leaders and have the skills necessary to speak out and express their opinions in an engaging and effective manner.


Overview

This project offered training for Maltese use in the art of Oration - that is the art of speaking and expressing yourself. JCI Malta created a structured programme that assisted youth in improving their debating and public speaking skills. In a world were youth must speak out and stand up for their beliefs and rights, we believe that equipping youth with what they need to put forward their message effectively is an essential task for an organisation like ours. For this reason three different sessions were organised as part of an initiative to open a 3rd chapter within JCI Malta. These 3 sessions focused on Persuading your audience through an effective presentation, Debating Skills, and Pitching your idea effectively.
