Tawasaw Muslim young voices class

What is the Muslim Young voices class? 

The Muslim young voices class offers a platform for youth to come together and learn their faith, identity, and heritage through learning the art and science of speech and debate. We offer classes that cover various types of oratory skills. This particular class will be about the foundation of public speaking and reducing stage fright.  

 

Our course starts with giving the Islamic knowledge through student-centered learning model. The notes students take from the first few classes enable them to write their speeches later on. The second stage will focus on the science of speaking and delivery. This class is not a writing class, it focuses more on speaking than writing.

This class will help the youth develop their original speech style while conforming to the parameters of public speaking science. Public speaking and debates are essential skills for high school and college students as well as those who are actively pursuing a job or internship.

What we aim to achieve

At our current state and sociopolitical environment, Muslim students, in particular, face hard challenges due to the misleading perception about Muslims and Islam.  Training in public speaking and debate will help our youth develop a strong identity, build their confidence, self-esteem, and self-image. 

Eventually, our class will remove the fear of speaking in public from youth and inspire them to embrace speaking and even enjoy such challenges.

We will teach them critical thinking and analysis skills needed for reading, speech, and debate.  They will become articulate communicators.

This matters in a world were Islam and Muslims are misunderstood, misrepresented, and under attack.  Not only it gives them the power to defend, but most importantly, it saves them and protects them from doubting or growing away from their dean.
