Welcome to the Toastmasters Youth Leadership Resources for District 21!
Toastmasters Youth Leadership Programs (YLP) are 4 to 9 session programs aimed to assist youth from the age of 11 to 17 to learn the presentation skills, listening skills and thinking skills that we experience in the Toastmasters program.
There have also been programs held for 7 to 11 year old youth in our District and you can find information about these in this section as well.
Those Toastmasters who have coordinated a Youth Leadership Program will meet one of the requirements for their Advanced Communicator Gold award.
We are continually adding information about what these programs are, how to conduct these programs and sharing of concepts, ideas and materials about and for these programs.
