National Public Speaking Bootcamp


YCF National Public Speaking Bootcamp 2021

Yu Cai Foundation (YCF) National Public Speaking Bootcamp 2021 is a development programme aims to provide knowledge, exposure and opportunity for students to practice English speaking skills through public speaking.

Yu Cai Foundation hopes to develop students to be both knowledgeable and confident in voicing their opinions, especially on the issues highlighted in United Nation Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDG), which Malaysia is a part of. It is hope that through the learning of the 17 UNSDG, we will be able to raise awareness on the current issues in Malaysia and globally amongst Malaysian students.

This bootcamp will be fully virtual. Students can access the learning materials and watch the videos at their own pace. At the end of the bootcamp, students will need to upload a 3 – 5 minutes video of them speaking about how they can contribute to UNSDG, to stand a chance to win amazing prizes!
