Building Up Our Teens through Speech and Debate

My college junior just is finishing up her leadership program this year. It is called Global Leadership, and she is delighted to be in this program. 

Getting into it as a freshman involved two interviews, references, and the like.  

Her interest in leadership began when she was homeschooling high school...

First, she wanted to try a speech class, to learn how to do public speaking.  And it went on from there...

Today, I'd like to share how my daughter developed speech and debate, and leadership skills through her activities...with links for you, too...

I am so glad that she has developed confidence in public speaking
There are so many options in the community, for teens!  

I'd love to what your  favorites are.  And for more ideas, read more about high school electives here.  

As homeschoolers, we're already expert in following our children's interests. And I just followed my teen's interests...what a joy to be able to do that.

Sunday was our youth group service.....

I am thankful that I found activities that would help build up my teen, and I am also thankful for our new little one...

...who is always on the move.

What are your favorite activities for your teen?  

I love getting your comments, and hearing about your teen's interests....That can be a support to other families as well.
