About Speakers League

Speakers League (recommended for ages 10-18) is a way of teaching public speaking through organized meeting sessions at which participating students rotate (from meeting to meeting) through various roles (e.g., MC, Timekeeper, prepared Speaker, Evaluator, Humorist, etc.). Meetings can either be held in-person or online.

  • Students learn how to do their roles and create speeches with their handbook (see sample pages). Handbooks are available for purchase on the “Supplies” tab in the menu. 
  • They also learn through meeting observation and participation.
  • Most adult facilitators of these meetings (we call them Chairpersons) opt to boost their students’ readiness and knowledge with our optional online training subscription which includes videos and quizzes for the students that you can track. Plus, students can earn badges. (When you purchase an online training subscription you also receive the full Chairperson’s Launch Guide with lesson plans to make the first few meetings a snap!)

The result? 

  • The result is students who have greater confidence, presentation skills, responsibility, leadership skills, critical thinking skills, and friendships.

About Junior Speakers League

Welcome to Junior Speakers League

Watch our intro video for Junior Speakers League. 5:09

Junior Speakers League clubs/classes (recommended for ages 7-9) are in-person or online meeting sessions very similar in format to Speakers League meetings (see videos above). But in JSL, you, as the club Chairperson, are a little more hands-on, taking things at the pace of your students, making sure they are ready for each step. 

  • Students learn how to do their roles and create speeches with their handbook (see sample pages). Handbooks are available for purchase on the “Supplies” tab in the menu. 
  • The JSL member handbook is simpler (see sample pages), and the members in the Basic Level have a worksheet for all speeches they give, to help them achieve the goals of the speech, for example using gestures, vocal variety, or visual aids.
  • They also learn through meeting observation and participation.
  • You can super-charge your students’ readiness and knowledge with our optional online training subscription which includes videos and quizzes for the students that you can monitor, plus they can earn badges and certificates. (When you purchase an online training subscription, the Club Chairperson (that’s you, the adult supervisor of the club) also receives the full Chairperson’s Launch Guide with lesson plans to make the first few meetings a snap!)
"All I can say is WOW!
I was so impressed with every aspect –
the kids, the speeches, the way the meetings are organized, the whole thing is totally superb. Bravo!!"

About the student training

Students learn how to do their roles and speeches through the member handbook and observing and participating in their class/club meetings, but training subscribers receive an engaging way to build their students’ knowledge with our multiple online lessons to ready them for the experience of being in the club, of preparing speeches, having strong presentation skills, and knowing how to properly conduct roles at the meeting like Timekeeper, Wordmaster, and Evaluator. Most of these lessons come with quizzes to reinforce the materials while rewarding students with badges and recognition boards. 

Additional training assets include a video handbook tour, a Parent Guide video to help set expectations for parent involvement, speech examples, and more!

"Of all the activities we have attended,
Speakers League is the wisest, most relevant, and
all-around the best."
Victoria M.

About us

Speakers League started in March 2008 with a single club in Carson, California. Over the years we opened more clubs and kept fine-tuning the program. When we initially made our system available to others, it was as an eBook, but our vision grew to include a meaningful online training component to make it even easier for like-minded people who are passionate about helping children develop public speaking and leadership skills. 

We are excited about our growth and are looking forward to being a part of the success of your public speaking program with our tools and resources. 

We value the input of our subscribers as we continue to improve and grow our offerings.
