A Generation that Learns to Listen, Reason, and Persuade can Shape the Future


NJO Chapters

In a culturally enriched context, Orators practice speaking and leadership skills with self-confidence.

Approximately 500 participants throughout the state of New Jersey comprise the 14 U.S. chapters (an outreach chapter is located at the Ethembeni School in Port Elizabeth, South Africa). With a steady growth of the organization, in 2001 the chapters were structured according to the organization insignia colors, purple and silver. These groupings are used for the two statewide competitions in fall and spring:

Every year, we receive numerous requests to open additional chapters. We will not, however, compromise the quality of the Orator's program and its objectives by fast and uncontrolled expansion. In order to expand, NJO must continue to attract and train quality coaches. Professionals from all walks of life who understand our goals and objectives and are willing to make a personal commitment to our organization.
