Zuriberg supports the creation of a new Toastmasters club for young people!
The JTC launched successfully in January 2018.
To set up a ‘Junior Toastmasters Club’ (working title) in Zürich. It offers an informal meeting environment, encouraging for young people (c.15 – 21 years old), to practise public speaking and evaluation, learn organisational skills, team building and exercise responsibility.
The members can focus on the first 6 speeches of the CC manuals or use the club as a platform to train their presentations for school/college. To discuss with the Junior members. Meetings to run on a weekday evening every second week adapted to students’ schedule.
Cost and sustainability
Almost the only cost planned is room hire (we currently have two options). With 20 motivated members, costs should be covered and allow the continuation of the project. Responsibility lies with the junior members to achieve financial break-even in 2018. Likely membership fee of CHF. 60.- per term/trimester.
