  • Evaluating their own speaking ability
  • Preparing and giving speeches

  • Controlling their voice, vocabulary and gestures
  • Giving constructive feedback and more

The workshop is co-ordinated by a member of the Toast Masters International Club.

 

Ø  Team Building and Leadership Activities
 

This includes a series of activities comprising a variety of games, creation of a shared calendar, keeping a gratitude journal, role play and more. These activities will

·        Help students to improve their communication and people’s skills.

·        Help students gain better self-awareness and more confidence

·        Give everyone the chance to feel what it’s like to be a leader and a follower

·        Encourage students to learn to respect others, practice active listening skills and find ways to offer appropriate feedback.

·        Encourage students to practice complimenting others, accepting compliments from others, finding strengths in everyone on the team and appreciating quality versus quantity.

·        Promote organization and planning

Ø      Community Service Project
 

Working as a group to achieve a goal and help others can be a rewarding experience not only for the group as a whole but for the individuals involved as well. This activity gives the team a shared goal and requires everyone to take initiative and contribute to the cause. Adults will monitor progress and encourage ideas while leaving actual decisions and problem solving to the group. The goal here is to make a difference in our community and learn how rewarding it is to work together.

Youth will be encouraged to volunteer for the lead roles and help with delegations.  Participants will be assigned tasks which they will carry out in groups. All activities will be supervised by adults and parents may assist if they wish.
