Success Secret:
At the Academy of Law and Public Service, we believe in empowering student voices. Students will be given daily opportunities to speak and practice presentation skills, when students can speak in an informed manner about issues that are important to them their self-confidence grows. From our experience coaching students in the County Mock Trial competition we have seen students gain tremendous benefit from public speaking and performance. Virtually all of the students we have worked with have remarked that they were able to overcome shyness and aversion to standing out as the object of attention before an audience. As the students gained confidence in their performance we have seen an increase in self – esteem and the realization that they are able to accomplish much more than they thought they were capable of. This added confidence also seems to allow students to enhance their leadership qualities with their peers. In many cases the transformation from a shy and reticent student to a confident leader has been remarkable.
