VOA20 Youth Page

VO Atlanta offers an incredible opportunity for the next generation of Voice Actors to "ENVISION" what it means to work in the world of voiceover at the VO Atlanta Youth Day.

Whether new to Voiceover or already experienced in the Voiceover field, this is an incredible opportunity to receive top-tier training to further Voiceover goals or simply explore what it's all about.

Led by Top industry leader Katie Leigh and other top resources including Lynnanne Zager, Scott Parkin, Melissa Disney, and Special Guest Rob Paulsen, this session will give participants the opportunity to breakdown copy, learn how to implement direction, and receive personal feedback and professional critique.

VO Atlanta is proud to offer the only conference based full-day youth program.  Kids are important to our future and we're excited about the chance to connect young minds with industry leaders.  What kid isn't excited about the chance to meet one of their favorite voices while learning about a career field they may have never thought of.

We're happy to bring in presenters specifically experienced in working with youth.  They get their energy directed in positive ways and design a fun day that brings out the best in our youth.
