Youth Leadership Program (YLP)

Youth Leadership Program (YLP) -Think of all the successful leaders you know, and then think if there is something familiar in all of them. Most probably, their one common trait is the ability to communicate effectively.

At Toastmasters, we firmly 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 develop this potential through practical experience so they can grow to successfully meet the challenges of leadership.

The program is based on 8 to 10 unique workshop-style sessions that allow the participants to learn by doing. The program aims to equip the future generation with tools that help them with the 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 life skill – effective communication.

The best part of the program is when, at the end of it, they have a look of exhilaration on their faces and a satisfying smile that says, “I have the power of effective communication.”
