QC Speech & Debate team is looking for Volunteer Advisors
9 people are interested
Queens College Speech Society is the speech and debate program at Queens College. Students compete in public speaking, drama, oral interpretation, and debate at tournaments throughout the Northeast and across the nation.
The team is looking for new advisors to volunteer their efforts to coach and mentor students in preparation for the upcoming 2019-2020 competition season. More specifically, the QCSS is looking for "coaches" that could assist the team in providing constructive feedback to students within weekly practice sessions throughout the season. Team members will have an opportunity to compete in any of the 11 speech catagories sanctioned by the National Forensic Association (NFA), which are: Informative, Impromptu Speech, Persuasion, After-Dinner Speaking, Communication Analysis, Prose, Poetry, Dramatic Interpretation, Duo, Program Oral Interpretation, and Extemporenous Speech. In addition to the 11 speech events, team members will also have an opportunity to debate in International Public Debate (IPDA Debate) and Parliamentary Debate.
Lastly, the team will not only be dedicated to competing within tournaments. Team members will seek ways to contribute to their academic community by hosting speech/debate tournaments at QC and will also assist as mentors within middle and high school debate after-school programs throughout Queens and Long Island.
This is a team not measured by the number of trophies or medals won; but rather, the team will be one that is measured by the number of hearts, minds, and lives that are touched. Volunteers will assist team members in reaching their full potential. I encourage you to visit our website at https://www.qcspeechsociety.com/ to find more about who we are and what we will be doing.
You do not need previous experience in public speaking, debate, or acting to volunteer. Just come and I will be happy to receive you. Please let me know if you are able to assist us.
We'll work with your schedule.
