It is important to us to be clear about what we do since the models for iSpeak Now are mobile! We are committed to the growth and development of our young people through our interactive programs. We need the following stakeholders to implement the models:

We understand that it is often assumed that children will learn communication skills on their own and without any formal training which is not true. Moreover, listening and speaking make up as much as 75% of adult communication but only represent 25% of the Common Core Standards.

We instill passion, pride, and confidence in children and young adults so that they recognize their future is limitless!
