ELOQUENTIA: LAUNCH OF PUBLIC SPEAKING PROGRAM IN MARSEILLE
ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION
NGO Name: Eloquentia
Eloquentia works to counteract social tensions that adversely impact disadvantaged French youth. Students living in underserved areas can often feel detached from school. In addition, low self-esteem and an inability to express themselves can lead to school dropout.
ABOUT THE PROJECT
The project creates strong social ties and harmony by fostering a culture of dialogue, civic debate and self-expression and respect. By focusing on work that builds confidence, encourages debate, discovers new ways of learning and helps students work toward common goals, Eloquentia's Public Speaking Program gives the tools they need to achieve.
IN THEIR OWN WORDS
"The art of speaking is a beautiful thing that allows us to gather through convictions and to discover each other, our limitations and our strengths."
