In a world where it isn't safe to have vulnerable conversations, we need spaces to talk about the challenges and anxieties we face when communicating with others. Join AnnMarie from The Practice Space and a team of high school students as they discuss everyday stories, accessible research, and techniques for finding your voice and communicating effectively.
Bonus Episode: Young Podcasters
In this episode, we introduce some of our youngest speakers at The Practice Space. As part of an introduction to podcasting class, students ages 8-10 created short teasers to introduce their ideas for original podcasts. From neighborhood stories to dreams of a fish, these students definitely show how creative their voices can be.
Bonus Episode: A Youth Leader's Voice on Public Education
In this episode of Youth Aloud, you will be hearing from Ella Bramwell, a rising senior at El Cerrito High School and participant in our Expressive Leaders program. She looked into public school funding specifically in the West Contra Costa Unified School District. She examines how funding, and recent budget cuts will affect programs, students, and staff.
S3E3: Journeys of Self-Confidence
In this episode of Youth Aloud, we talk about the importance of having a voice, even when it feels scary or uncertain. You’ll be hearing from TPS staff member Nancy Correa on sharing her experience in the foster system, students from Davis Joint Unified on what helps them build self-confidence and have a voice, and Mela Seyoum on why we need to speak up and share out today.
S3E2: Embracing Sudden Difference
How do we cope when everything is suddenly different? In this episode, we explore how good communication can help us navigate differences, from trying to make sense of competing parts of ourselves to learning to listen to the experiences of others. You’ll hear stories from about splitting time between new motherhood and a commitment to social justice, working with people who speak a different language, and learning to articulate diverse opinions.
S3E1: The Slow Scramble Towards Self-Improvement
In light of COVID-19, we are taking a step back to reflect on what we can still do while in quarantine to express our voice and tell our stories. In this episode of Youth Aloud, we focus on the self improvements and small steps that we can take, even today. You’ll be hearing from the Loma Vista Environmental Science Academy Debate Team, and AnnMarie Baines, Founder of The Practice Space.
Bonus Episode: Young Speakers Camp
Have you ever felt like it’s too early or too late to build confidence with public speaking? At The Practice Space, there’s never a limit on when or who can develop these skills, which is why we offer programs to all ages. In this episode we hear from students about their experiences at our Young Speakers Camp. Lindsey Lam interviews them about why they chose to attend and fears they had before they came. These youth are clear about one thing -- their voice matters and they're ready to share it.
