Toastmasters Workshop for Teens

Whether applying for jobs or interviewing for college scholarships, being able to speak in public is a necessary - but often scary! - skill to master. Being a confident public speaker can help you stand out from the crowd. The internationally renowned Toastmasters organization is offering a seven-week workshop for a select group of middle and high school students looking to take their presentation and public speaking skills to the next level.

Sponsored by the local Toastmasters Club, teen participants will practice speaking and listening skills in a positive environment and receive coaching from experienced speakers. By the end of the seven-week workshop, teens will be able to speak to groups or individuals with confidence and poise.

If you register for this workshop, please be aware that this is a commitment for all seven weeks in the series. Please call the Cumming Library at 770-781-9840 ext. 9919 to register.
