Growing up, standing in front of our peers for many of us made us a ball of nervous energy. Today, some of our youth look at “public speaking” as an intimidating task. What we’ve done first is to make it fun, easy and simple. Starting with these easy questions for each of our AYLA Girls. We asked each Young Leader to state the following – 1. Share your name, 2. What’s your grade and age, 3. Share 1 fun fact about themselves and 4. Tell us what they’ve learned/remembered most from the Academy.
Allowing the Young Leaders to practice speaking among their AYLA Sisters in this manner takes away the pressure. Practicing often and in this manner, helps them build confidence about their skill which ultimately promotes greater presenters and speakers.
ETIQUETTE: Why is it essential to teach etiquette? What makes the difference if a girl exhibits etiquette accurately? In society today, some of our youth lack the ability to simply say, “thank you,” or “excuse me,” or something as simple as saying “please.” It is our responsibility as parents and caretakers to ensure they learn and understand when to use these phrases daily. In every aspect of life our girls must know how to conduct themselves appropriately. The AYLAcademy has taken that charge to teach the Young Leaders of the Aspiring Young Leaders Academy just what to do when because teaching etiquette helps our daughters learn the difference between right and wrong, helps them to focus on their actions and teaches them how to appropriately interact with others.
