I watched the skills that Head Start Public Speaking planted within my daughter grow, thrive and stretch skyward! The transformation was astounding! She morphed from an insecure adolescent doubting the worth of anything she had to say, and supported her to blossom with confidence, self-awareness and tremendous strength.

What did Head Start do for my child’s future?

Specifically, she utilized the skills to apply for a Canada wide youth ambassadorship program with EF Tours. Where her proposal was one of thirty selected from more than 600 applicants to embark upon a service trip to the Dominican Republic, later travelling to Ottawa to meet with members of parliament.

These same skills interpersonal and phenomenal presentation skills also put her at greater advantage for her post-secondary applications as well as seeking bursary and scholarship opportunities. Months after her presentation, I am still being greeted by members of community remarking on how powerfully polished her presentation was.

It's one thing to understand our own communication skills, it's another thing to develop confidence to speak out and advocate, but when that is matched with knowing how to strategically plan a presentation, that ups the game, thereby launching our children into entirely new levels of possibilities.

Where the public-school system drops the ball in its curriculum, Paula Howley of Head Start Public Speaking delivers. Families are offered an opportunity to truly invest in our children’s ability to create and claim their own futures.

Investing in this experience truly does give your child at a head start!

This program has been so incredible for our daughter. When she started she was painfully shy and unsure how to express her thoughts. She now volunteers as her schools MC and regularly speaks in front of the whole school. This program has also helped her find an inner creative writer. Paula is an amazing and inspiring leader and does so with lots of humour making this program one of the most fun things our daughter does every week! Every kid should try it!

Imagine watching your child step into the light and shine with their own voice. Imagine seeing them rise to the occasion and help others along the way to do the same. Paula Howley is giving this gift to us through her Headstart Public Speaking for Kids program. My son, who’s been in her program for two years, says he feels like he’s developed a super power! And I couldn’t agree more! Through storytelling, introspection, and pushing through fears, they are learning who they are and how they want to show up in this world! When we arm our kids with this superpower, we are creating better relationships, better classes, better communities and ultimately a better world!
