With the overutilization of technology and underutilization of speech to communicate in today’s world, Well Said was developed to encourage youths to find and use their voice to tell the story of their communities — in their own words.
Well Said… is a 12-week Public Speaking mentorship program for at-risk youth ranging from middle to high school ages. Many of the participants come from underserved or economically disadvantaged neighborhoods and families.
This mentorship program provides Orlando’s youth with a fun and refreshing alternative to learning life and work skills. Public speaking lessons are taught using the program’s three core values: to enlighten, entertain, and uplift! These three values inspire students to possess self-confidence, self-love, and the power to articulate their wants to all audiences. In doing so, Well Said is helping to shape Orlando’s young leaders.
