COVID-19 Announcement: While the current public health crisis has caused SPEAK to put many of our 2020 programs on hold, we are working hard to continue finding new ways to share our programs and continue our work, even if it has to be remote for the time being.
For questions about our efforts during these uncertain times, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The SPEAK Team:
Assistant Director for Communications
SPEAK is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit dedicated to promoting debate, public speaking, and advocacy. SPEAK offers educational programs, which use debate as a tool for improving participants' professional and public speaking skills.
Through our program, participants learn how to use non-verbal skills, conduct thorough research, structure an argument, and present their work in front of an audience. We work with all ages. The SPEAK program can be provided as an eight-week course or a day-long seminar. Individual hour-long public speaking or research sessions are also available.
SPEAK started as a student group at Vermont Law School. Through collaboration with the University of Vermont and the Albert Schweitzer Fellowship, as well as the dedication of our volunteers, SPEAK has grown into an independent organization committed to encouraging powerful voices. SPEAK has hosted programs for a variety of schools and organizations in our home state of Vermont and abroad.
We believe that everyone has a unique and powerful message to share.
