Start a Youth Leadership Program

As you may know Toastmasters International has an age limit for members of clubs.  It's 18 years old, but that doesn't mean that young adults younger than that should miss out on the important skills that being in a Toastmasters clubs teaches. That is where the Youth Leadership Program comes in.  It's for youth between 7 and 17 years of age.
