Course Format

Your teen will learn and collaborate with a small group of other students in assignment-driven workshop courses led by experienced instructors. Office hours are included for further help and personalized guidance. Learn more below.


Sample Schedule

Here’s a sample of what two weeks in this course could look like. Keep in mind students will progress at varying paces, and this is meant to serve as an outline of key materials and the overall experience. 

Start your journey into persuasive speaking by learning how to identify and connect to your target audience. Then, set yourself up for success by exploring the three critical elements of presenting with panache: preparation, persuasion, and performance. You’ll compile a checklist of steps that ensure a magnetic performance, and you’ll put those steps into action during your practice presentation. Remember—practice makes permanent!

Once you’ve laid a solid foundation in persuading and presenting, you’ll turn your attention to the art of conversation. In preparation for your mock interview, you’ll learn what types of questions to expect, how to differentiate yourself from other interviewees, and the formula for proving your undeniable value to a potential employer.

Following your mock interview, you’ll conclude the course with entrepreneurship essentials and discover the power of selling in teams. Introducing more smart people into a sales pitch scenario creates more room for bad habits, but learning how to navigate a complex set of competitive talking points will give your team the edge they need to create separation and stand out from other prospects.
