Hear From Just a Few of the 5,000+ Families Who Love LL

LearningLeaders has really opened up my passion for debate. The community is caring, loving, and has become a second family to me.
Grade 10
I would describe my coaches as very kind, supportive, lighthearted, and just very fun people.
Grade 9
I have recommended LearningLeaders to my friends countless times. Their goal is not just to get kids to be good at public speaking or debating, but educating the whole person.
By public speaking, I can well organize my thoughts and express myself more confidently in front of the audience.
Grade 5
After my child attended speech training, I found she is very organized and logical. For example, there is a clear beginning and end and clear structure in between.
After I learned speech and debate in LearningLeaders, I felt that I knew more things and I had more confidence in life.
Grade 6
