“For Members Benefits” – Toastmasters Youth Leadership Program

Toastmasters Youth Leadership Program

Sugar Speakers Toastmasters Club in Sugar land is organizing a Youth Leadership Program (YLP) for the kids through this club. This will be a Toastmasters branded program and will follow Toastmasters curriculum. 

1) Program : YLP is a workshop conducted over a period of 8 weeks, 1 session per week, 2 hours each session that will enable young people under the age of 18 to develop their communication skills and leadership skills through practical experience and in a conducive environment.

In this YLP workshop, young people will learn valuable skills including:

  • Overcome their nervousness when speaking before an audience
  • Develop their confidence in public speaking
  • Evaluating their own speaking ability
  • Preparing and giving speeches, 
  • Organize and present ideas logically & convincingly
  • Giving impromptu talks
  • Controlling their voice, vocabulary, grammar, gestures and use of filler words
  • Develop listening skills
  • Participate in and lead group discussions and meetings
  • Giving constructive feedback and much more

All these skills are necessary for earning a living in today’s competitive job market, but are also essential for maintaining healthy personal relationships and achieving academic goals in middle & high school and college.

At completion of the program, all the participants will be asked to deliver a speech of their own, to the entire group, in front of their parents, friends, teachers, community & others where they will demonstrate the skills learnt in the workshop.

The participants will receive a program completion certificate from Toastmasters International which will add value to their resume when applying for college admission.

2) Benefits : All the above including gaining confidence, enhancing their communication skills, developing leadership abilities enabling them to become leaders of tomorrow in business, industry & community.

You as parents, will make a difference in the life of your child, giving him/her the best gift ever (that will last him/her a lifetime).


3) Cost : We do NOT charge any fees before or after the program and this is not permitted by Toastmasters.  The Toastmasters club will pay the cost for the training and its materials. This YLP is done in an effort to develop the leaders for tomorrow and build a better community. We only require the kids are committed to attend the 8 weeks session without missing any of them and be willing to learn. There are no other pre-requisites for joining the program.

4) Trainers : Will be distinguished Toastmasters & experienced leaders from different Toastmasters clubs around Sugar Land & Houston.

5) Venue : Will be scheduled at one of the educational institutions at Sugar land and/or around Houston during the weekends (Saturday AM) or one of the weekdays in the evening.

6) Number of participants : The program will be a focused approach with the kids receiving individual attention during the workshop. The max size per group is therefore limited to a max of twenty (20) kids and will be reserved on first come first serve basis. Age group between 13 – 18. Multiple groups may be formed depending on the number of participants confirmation received.

7) Start : The YLP programs will commence in Feb 2018 and will be completed before the summer break.
