Description

I'm Diya Vij, and I've started a program known as The Speak Square (thespeaksquare.com) in California over the past year - an organization that teaches middle school students essential public speaking skills that are useful in high school and beyond. I'm currently looking for high school students who can teach chapters of the program from July through September 2021. No public speaking experience is required, though it may be useful.

I will provide you most of the content to teach the children - it's only necessary that you do some recruitment of your own, which I will guide you through. The time commitment is about three hours a week, and is open to anyone around the world. If you're interested in having an introductory meeting with me, please fill out this form: https://forms.gle/KGF6kjy9vJ1wzXRb8

Competitiveness

What you put into The Speak Square will be what you get out! You will essentially be starting your own virtual chapter of the program, so it's equivalent to running a club or organization in your community. 

Minimum Technical Skill Needed

Some public speaking experience of any kind would be great, but nothing is required. You will be teaching basic presentation skills and public speaking, not competitive debate.

Time Commitment

Four hours a week maximum.
