Want to grow your public speaking and leadership skills?

A President's Distinguished Club

Toastmasters International is a non-profit educational organization that teaches public speaking and leadership skills through a worldwide network of clubs.

The mission of a Toastmasters club is to provide a mutually supportive and positive learning environment in which every individual member has the opportunity to develop oral communication and leadership skills, which in turn foster self-confidence and personal growth.

How does Toastmasters work?

Unlike many classes on public speaking and leadership, which focus on theory alone, Toastmasters members gain first hand experience by practicing what they learn. We practice a proven learn-by-doing approach by guiding our members in building skills and experiences starting with basics and gradually advancing. Members move at their own pace to reach their goals, supported and motivated by leaders and fellow community members.
