Organizations already exist to promote speaking and leadership for adults, but very few are geared specifically towards the youth.
Instead of having leadership as a side benefit, we cultivate leadership through organized programs that specifically target the youth with an emphasis on teaching skills behind doing so while providing a forum for empowerment.
Speaking skills are practical, not theoretical knowledge. Practical skills such as building a car require hands-on experience and practice to hone, in contrast to theoretical skills and knowledge that are in the abstract that can be learned from a textbook. Therefore, this organization seeks especially to provide chances for young individuals to gain practical speaking and leadership knowledge through exposure.
Aniruth Narayanan, current president of this nonprofit, recalls:"Whenever I wanted an opportunity in organizations to speak, it was difficult with many more obstacles to doing so than anyone would expect on account of my age. While I did learn much from other organizations, one that would provide such opportunities without the barriers to succeed is something I wish I had as I was growing up".
