Personal narrative development and public speaking plays a large role in the One Bead Youth Leadership Program curriculum. We believe kids who can confidently articulate their strengths and weaknesses will be more successful applying for college, interviewing for jobs, and pursuing their passions. Our goal is to give students the opportunity to practice their public speaking skills in a safe environment.
This year we were partnered with TEDxBeaconStreet to coach seven TEDxYouth speakers. Each speaker taught us something new and left us inspired beyond belief. We are grateful to the team at TEDxBeaconStreet for giving us this opportunity and for providing a platform for students worldwide to share their stories.
