Building a Stronger Youth


20 Hours




Youth is the time when one is young, developing, and getting ready to face the life ahead. For that the Building a Stronger Youth program prepares the younger generation.

The goal of the workshop is to introduce participants to the fundamentals of creating a presentation. Participants will discuss the components of a good speech or presentation and will eventually develop their own. As they work through the activities, they will write presentations in class.

Participants will understand the different methods of communication and how to make the most of each of them, by also learning more about themselves and how they behave, through emotional intelligence, and how to communicate better with body language and in an assertive way.

They will also be able to know how to manage their time efficiently and use it effectively while planning and executing.
