Public Speaking – Spring 2023


Dear 4-H Members and Families,

It’s time to start another Public Speaking project series with Dr. Jeff Johnson.  As many of you know, Dr. Johnson and his Toastmasters International friends have been leading this project for 32 years.  With experience and a passion for public speaking, he leads even the most reluctant 4-H youth through fun and amusing exercises to become confident leaders and speakers.  This project is a great aid to every 4-H member, especially those who would like to serve as officers at the club or county level.

Please see the following details:

  • There are only 8 spots.  By signing up you are taking one of these limited spots.  If your schedule changes and you cannot attend all eight weeks, you will be depriving another youth of the opportunity to attend.
  • The project meets every Thursday from 6:50 p.m. to 9 p.m. from February 9th to March 30th.
  • Meetings take place at the Extension office located in downtown Fort Worth.  If you have never visited the office, please see this link for directions and parking information.
  • It is very important that members be present and ready at 6:50 p.m. each week.
  • You may miss one or two meetings, but please consider signing up at a different time if you already know you will need to miss two or more days.
  • Parents may stay and sit in on the course, as well as younger siblings, as long as they do not distract from the program.  There is also another meeting room for parents and siblings to spread out their own work or to read quietly.
  • Members who have taken Public Speaking in the past can take the course again.  If it has been less than a year since you took Public Speaking, you may be asked to relinquish your spot to a member who has not taken the course before.

Register here by completing the google form.

Registration will close as soon as we reach our limit of 8 or on February 3, 2023 at 5pm.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
