Port Colborne High – Youth Leadership Graduation

December 7, 2012

On December 5, 25 Grade 9 students at Port Colborne High School completed an 8 week Youth Leadership Project.

This Youth Leadership Program was led by Garden City Toastmasters members Wayne Buchkowski, Sharon Whitty and Charlotte King.

Sponsored and conducted by Toastmasters International and its local clubs, Youth Leadership helps young people build their communication and leadership skills so they may become tomorrow’s leaders in business, industry and the community.

Every young person has the potential to become a good communicator and leader, and this potential needs to be developed. The program’s unique eight-session, workshop-style design enables participants to develop this potential through practical experience.

Participants learn to:

  • Overcome nervousness when speaking before an audience.
  • Organize and present ideas logically and convincingly.
  • Listen carefully to others’ ideas.
  • Offer advice to help others improve their speaking and leadership skills.
  • Participate in – and even lead – group discussion or meetings.

As participants learn they increase their self-confidence, make new friends and have fun, and see how Toastmasters is an enjoyable learning experience!
