What is Toastmasters for Seniors About?

Our free monthly sessions encourage participants to practice new skills through a variety of activities, whether it be a goal-focused speech or taking on a leadership role at a meeting. Individuals build confidence by leading the meeting, signing up to give a speech, or practicing impromptu speaking while gaining feedback.

About the Program

Objectives

Our goal is to enrich the lives of seniors in the Markham area by providing them with access to educational workshops in an in-person setting. These workshops promote the value of knowledge and skills that are relevant to their daily lives.

Components

This program aims to deliver 30 1-hour sessions from March to December 2024. Collaborating with numerous community partners, we aim to enhance the well-being and quality of life for elderly community members.

Outcomes

Through a comprehensive curriculum covering public speaking contests, digital literacy, and promoting a healthy lifestyle that includes the Canadian Food Guide, our project strives to empower and engage seniors to lead fulfilling lives.
