BIG VOICES

"The importance of exposure is making a young person part of a conversation that society has been having without them for years." - Big Boi


The Big Voices Program initiative is dedicated to empowering youth ages' 12-18 to have a voice. Youth are encouraged to "stand up and speak up" by giving them a platform to speak and the tools to effectively communicate.

Debate/public speaking Clubs- As a part of the Big Voices Programs, Public Speaking clubs, similar to Toast Masters, are sponsored in local schools. The goal of the Big Voices Clubs is to help our youth:

. Communicate more effectively
. Become better listeners
. Improve presentation skills
. Increase leadership potential
. Increase self-confidence
