“Boot camp” to help teens with speaking and leadership skills

A free course designed to help teen-agers develop their presentation and leadership skills is scheduled for the Mesa County Libraries central library in Grand Junction.

The Toastmasters Youth Leadership Boot Camp is set for 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursdays March 23 to April 20 at the library, located near Fifth Street and Grand Avenue. Registration is required.   To register, call 243-4442 or visit www.mesacountylibraries.org.

The workshop-style course, open to teens ages 13 to 17, will help participants develop communication and leadership skills through practical experience. In the final class on April 20, participants will deliver a five-minute media-themed Ignite! presentation aimed at inspiring the audience.

Participants will learn to evaluate their speaking ability; organize and present speeches; give impromptu talks; control their voice, vocabulary and gestures; and give constructive feedback. Most of the workshops will be facilitated by experienced youths who have completed the program.
