Think of all the successful leaders you know, and then think is there something common in all of them? Most probably the one common trait in all of them will the ability to communicate effectively.
At Toastmasters, we strongly believe, that every person has the potential to become a good communicator and leader. What is required is the chance to develop this potential. With the Youth Leadership Program, we help the young generation in developing this potential through practical experience, so that they can grow to meet the challenges of leadership successfully.
The program is based on 8 to 10 unique workshop style sessions, that give the participants a chance to learn by doing. The aim of the program is to equip the future generation with tools that help them with following aspects:
- Overcome nervousness when speaking before an audience.
- Organize and present ideas logically and convincingly.
- Offer advice to help others improve without criticizing them.
These young people are the leaders of tomorrow, by providing them guidance through the Youth Leadership Program, we are empowering the next generation with a very important skill of life – effective communication.
The best part of the program is when at the end of it they have a look exhilaration on their faces and the satisfying smile that says “I have the power of effective communication”
