A new homeschool Speakers League club is starting Friday, September 6th in Fullerton. Meetings will be held on the 1st and 3rd Friday of the month, between September and June, from 10am-11:30am. The location is First Christian Church, 109 East Wilshire Avenue Fullerton, CA 92832 (north of the 91 at the corner of Harbor Blvd., in the heart of downtown Fullerton). There are no meetings in July and August.
THERE IS A TUITION SPECIAL
for the members that join BEFORE September 6th (that means joining no later that the 5th). . .
The usual tuition is $25 for the registration fee plus $20 per month ($18 for siblings) (we are an approved vendor with Sky Mountain and Golden Valley). Not counting the one-time registration fee, that's normally $240 per year -- but if you join by September 5th
you only pay $35 per year for as long as your child is in the club!
(This offer not valid for Charter students).
The club is strictly limited to 20 kids (if we reach 20, any additional kids can join the waiting list, but will not receive the $35 pricing), so sign up immediately to take advantage of this offer which is first come, first served. Our other clubs in the South Bay and Long Beach are (almost always) full with waiting lists. (If you are a member of another club, you are welcome to join this one too, with this special offer, to allow you more speaking opportunities and advance more quickly.)
To get this offer, register at the following link by September 5th:
Upon registering, you will be invited to join the OCspeakersleague yahoo group, you will be mailed your member handbook (deadline for mailing will be 5 days before the first meeting, otherwise it will be available at the first meeting), and you will be emailed information and instructions on your child(ren)'s assigned role(s) at the first meeting.

Watch the whole thing, or skim through it. It features the South Bay club which has been around since 2008 and has had over 100 meetings.
Our goal with our Speakers League clubs is to develop the public speaking and leadership skills of Southern California homeschoolers aged 10 and up. (Serious-minded younger ones are welcome too.) We welcome homeschoolers of every stripe. We have independent homeschoolers and families who have joined different public and private school programs. We are a very diverse group. Everyone is welcome.
Though mentored by adults who conduct periodic training segments, the meetings are run by the kids themselves. Parents are welcome to stay and watch.
It takes about 12 months to complete a "Level," which entails giving seven speeches with varying emphases, plus doing each of the other 9 club roles from MC to timekeeper. There are four levels for Speakers League. Children that complete all four levels and have been a club officer at least once, are then considered “Club Mentors.”
