Gavel Club Experience
The Vancouver Gavel Clubs are Youth public speaking and leadership clubs organized by Toastmasters members. The Gavel Club members are Youth ages 12 to 17.
As a long time member of Vancouver Toastmasters Club #59, I regularly give guest speeches and mentorship for the Gavel Clubs in Vancouver, along with many other volunteers from local Toastmasters clubs.
I am always impressed by the speaking skills and enthusiasm of the youth members and I think this is a very valuable program for them to gain leadership skills, confidence, and practice their speaking and presentation skills.
This week, I gave a guest speech at the UBC Wesbrook Mall Gavel Club. A recording and transcript of my speech is below:
