Public speaking has taken a center stage in today’s education and career. All of us know the importance that communication plays in our daily lives. VT Seva has been providing an opportunity to our youth get introduced to public speaking and advance their skills since last 5 years. VT Seva is bringing another great opportunity this year as well!
