Think of the successful leaders you know

They all have one trait in common – the ability to communicate effectively.  The Youth Leadership program empowers kids to meet the challenges of adulthood and leadership successfully. Sponsored and conducted by Toastmasters International and its local clubs, Youth Leadership helps young people build their communication and leadership skills so they may become tomorrow's leaders in business, industry and the community.
 
Purpose of the Program

Every young person has the potential to become a good communicator and leader, but this potential needs to be developed. The program's unique and engaging eight-session, workshop-style design enables participants to realize this potential through practical experience, providing emphasis on specialized speaking and leadership skills while taking into consideration individual needs. 

Participants learn to:

  • Overcome nervousness when speaking before an audience.
  • Organize and present ideas logically and convincingly.
  • Listen carefully to others' ideas.
  • Offer advice to help others improve their speaking and leadership skills.
  • Participate in - and even lead - group discussion or meetings.

 

Participants increase their self-confidence as they learn. They also make new friends and most importantly have fun! Toastmasters is an enjoyable learning experience!

The Participants

Each Youth Leadership program group is made up of 15 to 20 participants. That way, each child receives individual attention and has the opportunity to get practical experience.

There is usually no cost to participants for tuition or materials. The materials used in the program are produced by Toastmasters International and are provided by the sponsoring Toastmasters club, which orders them from Toastmasters World Headquarters for a small fee.

The Sponsors

A local Toastmasters club serves as sponsor and provides the experienced coordinators needed to execute the program. These adults have volunteered their time and talents to serve young people and are passionate about helping youth to improve their communication and leadership skills.
