Outstanding Orators Program Builds Student Confidence in the 21st Century Learner

Eldridge Overton Educational Programs offers free public speaking workshop for children in grades three through eight.

Green Brook, NJ (I-Newswire) December 5, 2013 - Eldridge Overton Educational Programs has taken it upon themselves to teach public speaking and debating essentials to aspiring youth leaders in their free Outstanding Orators workshop. This two hour workshop teaches children everything from how to go about speaking confidently in front of an audience to the fundamentals of writing a persuasive speech.

The workshop covers topics include the importance of good eye contact, proper stance, and how to identify different kinds of speeches. It also goes into further detail by having the students write and present their own speeches! The workshop will be held December 30, 2013 from 10 am - 12pm at the Green Brook, NJ enrichment center.

Tiffany Overton, Founding Partner of Eldridge Overton Educational Programs and a guest speaker herself, discusses the importance of teaching children the fundamentals of public speaking by stating, "Clearly, every single child that is enrolled in our Outstanding Orators workshop will not ultimately become an attorney or professional keynote speaker one day. However, each student will learn that in order to become a leader in their chosen profession, they must be able to confidently and eloquently share their ideas with their future colleagues. Moreover, children that can overcome their fear of public speaking ultimately demonstrate increased self-esteem and confidence."

Outstanding Orators also encourages students to be leaders amongst their peers. Students will also be introduced to critical-thinking and persuasive writing skills in the workshop. The course will also provide the students with the knowledge and skill set to spark an interest in the area of public speaking and will encourage students to continue to dream about possible career opportunities.

Natasha Eldridge and Tiffany Overton founded Eldridge Overton Educational Programs in 2005 with the aspirations of improving the education system and the lives of children. Both left careers in the school system with the purpose of positively impacting students of all skill levels by providing high quality supplemental educational programs to reinforce what has been taught in class. Both Eldridge and Overton continue to strive to improve education amongst America's youth in hopes to provide them with the appropriate knowledge and background to become successful wherever their lives take them.
