As mothers, professionals, and managers, we at Moxie know the importance of strong verbal communication in school, work, and beyond. Unfortunately, we have also seen a sharp decline in communicative competence in generations raised with access to technology at a young age. We are concerned that our children aren't comfortable with direct communication. They struggle to engage, make eye contact, stand up confidently, and exist in their own skin. Generations that are now referred to as Millenials born in the early 1980's through the mid 1990's and the i-gen born in the mid 1990's through 2012. This achievement gap is widening and threatens the futures of our children.
As parents and educators, living with this knowledge and failing to find a solution is hard. Learn With Moxie® is here to
re-engage our children.
Individuals in all levels of education journeying into the workplace must be able to engage, connect and lead both verbally
and non verbally.
With Moxie’s programs, and an emphasis on active learning, we get kids talking more and typing less. Through strategically developed and FUN activities, we can give children the opportunity to hone in on their communication skills without them
even realizing it.
Our programs are easily implemented in the classroom, after school program or at home. Let’s help them now, during their formative years before they are career searching, interviewing and LEADING.
