Speak-Up: Using Your Voice

Speak-Up uses fun activities, prompt cards and topical scripts and debates as a starting point for individuals and groups to think act, reflect and perform with confidence.

 

This engaging workshop presents opportunities for students to:

develop skills that they can use in real life situations.
