Location and Meetings

New Jersey Orators chapters meet in partnering schools, churches, colleges, corporate training facilities, and libraries. In practice workshops volunteers coach youth weekly throughout the school year. Annual competitions and community presentations managed by the executive board allow them to hone their skills. There are over 200 volunteer coaches and over 100 volunteer judges, timekeepers, and assistants who help operate this program smoothly annually.
