GLENVIEW – Toastmasters International Youth Leadership public speaking program is back by popular demand and returning to the North Shore.
Last year the program launched in this area with support from Regional Director Ivory Gwin and Shirley Tracey, Head of Toastmasters International Glenview Chapter. Jack Rosenthal and Danial Sajan are again welcoming Marina Nomidou of the Toastmasters International Glenview Chapter. Marina beautifully developed and executed the meetings prior, and will have Diana Cirstea, fellow Glenview Toastmaster join her this session to coordinate and coach this spring. Danial and Jack are inviting 5th and 6th grade kids in the community to participate in the empowering club and all it has to offer.
The workshops consist of 9, 1 1/2 hour sessions for kids to develop their communication and leadership abilities through practical experience. Valuable skills learned will include:
* Evaluating their own speaking strength
* Teach how to organize and present ideas logically
* Preparing and giving speeches in front of an audience
* Giving impromptu talks
* Controlling their voice, vocabulary and gestures
* Expressing constructive feedback and more.
Upon completion an increased sense of self confidence and satisfaction will be the outcome. The workshops will be held in the conference room at Northfield library on Saturdays from 2-3:30 for 9 weeks starting May 12 ending July 14, with no class Memorial Day weekend. There is a small administration fee to cover expenses.
If interested, please contact Jack and Danial at [email protected] Space is limited, and eligibility is based on right fit.
