Our philosophy:

United Speakers was founded to provide an enriching environment for youth to develop their public speaking skills. We have realized that the most effective learning environments are ones where youth learn from youth. Our philosophy surrounds this “Youth Lead Youth” framework and it provides a unique opportunity for students to grow and lead. Our organization is completely youth led, with a massive network of 100+ executives across several cities. All of our student leaders are committed to bringing the best possible experience for our members, while  maintaining our goal of helping each student find their inner voice.
