From Andrew P Bennett DTM District 91 Youth Leadership Adviser
Programs completing include the one coordinated by Beate Rissbacher ( Past President Berkeley Square Speakers) at St Johann Tyrol in Austria (pictured here). This is our International export from Berkeley and London Division B – we never forget we are part of a worldwide community and love to share skills.
Beate says ‘ The young people had great fun and progressed their speaking skills. I personally enjoyed the program very much and watching the improvement was really rewarding. We were even the topic of a newspaper article,’ ( See below)
Berkeley Square Speakers is also undertaking a Youth Leadership Program at ACS School, Hillingdon for the second time . Marc Lottig and David Salamons will again coordinate and guide the sessions on behalf of Toastmasters, with the added pleasure that Paul, a pupil at the school and graduate from the last program is taking on some leadership tasks as part of a special school project.
Our young people go from strength to strength and as you will have seen from my monthly postings we have several programs in mid flow. Just this week I have heard of two more that are being prepared for launch.
Feel free to contact me if you or your club would like to be involved in Toastmasters Youth Leadership Program.
