Toastmasters is something that I advise to every young person. I went to TM for a couple of years and found it to be incredibly helpful. Today I am a full time explorer but also have a speaking agent.

It seems like an interesting and relevant program to help our students develop and improve their communication skills, which is an important part of their education and training, and may be the differentiator when joining the workforce.

Something I hear most from members is 'I wish I joined Toastmasters earlier'. I highly recommend any youth or students to join U+ Gavel Clubs because their mentorship and training will continue to produce great leaders for the future.
As a public official, I know the importance of being a confident public speaker, and I appreciate that the U+ Education Toastmasters Club provides future leaders with the opportunity to develop public speaking, communication, and leadership skills.”

Toastmasters is a great program for students to build leadership and confidence. Developing these skills can be a huge advantage for students when pursuing post-secondary education and professional achievements.
I joined the U+ Gavel Club in a leadership position, and right from the start was welcomed with open arms. Not only was the leadership knowledgeable and excellent at working with me, but they were also passionate about the subject matter and the kids. As well, I was able to be given creative freedom to try new event ideas to further help and engage the kids.
