As our year ends, it’s time
to celebrate. Celebrate
the successes our club
has made, celebrate our
personal achievements in
Toastmasters and celebrate a new year to come.
Regardless of how your
club ended, you are distinguished. You have
made a difference in
someone’s life as you
helped them to improve
themselves, as they’ve
changed from a student
to a doer. All of us start
out as students and as
we progress, the student
becomes the teacher. As
more people join our
clubs, it is time for us to
step up a notch to mentor
them. As I travelled
throughout the District

wonderful Toastmasters
who are mentoring others. We learn from those
who have paved the path
to good communication
skills. This is the start on
the road to success.
Many of you have

One Hour on a Friday could change a Life —Lue Drummond
One hour on a Friday
morning could help change
a life! Come out to the
Trenton Rescue Mission
Gavel Club and make new
Friends! The members of
the Trenton Rescue Mission Gavel Club would like
your help with their skill
development as Toastmasters “Gaveliers”. This is an
opportunity for experienced
Toastmasters to deliver
prepared and impromptu
speeches, give feedback
on presentations, and provide positive reinforcement
to the Gavel Club Members.
The group would benefit
from listening to more experienced speakers during
their Friday morning meetings. If you are able to
present a 5-minute speech
from the Better Speaker
Series, Successful Club
Series, or Leadership Excellence Series, we will
place you on the agenda. As you may recall, FREE downloads for
these Series presentations
are available from the
Toastmasters website http://
www.toastmasters.org/269
DCD.
Who:

What: Willing to give a presentation

How:
Contact Lue Drummond
at [email protected]
Why:
Help individuals become better Speakers and
Leaders
Please let me know which
Friday you would like to
join us. This Gavel Club
began in March of this
year. Other Toastmasters
who have given their support to the group include
Corbett Klein, Elliot Dennis, Fleurette King, Leonie
Infantry, Herbert Rheinstrom, and Angie
Hee. Talk with these
Toastmasters about their
experiences with this organization. There is room
for you!!
As you may recall, Gavel
Clubs are a way of providing Toastmasters’ selfimprovement methods and
materials to people who
may be ineligible for regular membership due to
age, inability to pay dues
or other circumstances.
Gavel Clubs provide Toastmasters members and
clubs with an excellent opportunity for community
service. They can be found
in high schools, colleges,
rehabilitation institutions,
hospitals and elsewhere.
In many ways, Gavel Clubs
operate in the same way
ordinary Toastmasters
clubs do. They have the
same club officer titles, use
the same communication
track manuals and follow
similar club meeting protocols. Gavel Club members
are not, however, referred
to as Toastmasters; they
are called
"Gaveliers." Gavel Clubs
differ in that they have limited access to the leadership track awards and materials, cannot participate
in Toastmasters area and
district speech contests
and do not enjoy many of
the privileges and benefits
that come with full membership in Toastmasters.
How to Form a Gavel Club
If you are interested in forming
a Gavel Club, your group
must meet all of the criteria
listed below. Gavel Clubs:
«
must not be composed
of employed adults;
«
must not be eligible to
charter as a regular Toastmasters club;
«
may include members
who are under 18;
«
must have the approval or endorsement of its
host institution;
«
must use the program,
methods, procedures, materials and services of
Toastmasters International, whenever possible; and
«
must apply to Toastmasters International for a
Certificate of Affiliation.
http://www.toastmasters.org/
Members/MemberExperience/
SatellitePrograms/
GavelClubs.aspx
The objective of the Trenton Rescue Mission Gavel Club is to help the residents of the Rescue Mission gain self confidence,
leadership, and speaking
skills as they re-integrate
into society. You will be
surprised and very pleased
at the skill and earnestness
that the members are
bringing to the meetings.

Best Practices for
Division F hosted Youth Leadership —Todd Greenberg
More than 150 students
graduate from Toastmasters Youth Leadership Program (YLP). Educational
Testing Service (ETS)
volunteers as the host site
for over 150 students participating in a free, 9 week
public speaking and leadership program designed to
help children gain confidence and skills in both
areas. The children participating in the ETS Toastmasters program have
been able to turn public
speaking from a mortal fear
to a lifelong asset. The
ETS Office of the Social
Investment Fund (OSIF)
has supported the YLP for
almost 8 straight years.
The children, ages 6 to 16,
voluntarily participated in a
9-week program mentored
by several local Toastmasters Clubs and Club members. Among the participating clubs were: The ETS
Toastmasters; the RWJF
Toastmasters; Bull Masters; and the Princeton
Toastmasters. Members
from each club volunteered
to lead the YLP every Saturday morning.
“After 9 weeks, the graduation program is a tremendous celebration,” says program founder Jean Shipos
from the ETS Toastmasters
Club. “We have some of
the youngest kids up on
stage side-by-side with high
school age kids. All equally
delivering effective, imaginative speeches.”
The YLP is operational because of the generosity of
ETS and it is the largest
program of its kind in the
United States. “The only
way we have been able to
even be operational,” says
Shipos, “is because ETS
virtually gives us its entire
facility at no cost to the children or parents for the entire program.”
Every Saturday morning,
for 9 weeks from January to
April, students are brought
to the ETS campus by their
parents. The children are
organized into age groups
and mentors lead them
through a series of interactive projects in which the
children learned how to
address any topic at a moment’s notice; how to write
and deliver a speech; how
to evaluate another speaker including giving pointers
for improvement; and how
to listen effectively. Additionally, the children learn
the basics of parliamentary
procedures and how to fulfill officer positions.
Through the YLP students
become confident speakers
who have taken leadership
roles in their school and
their community.
14 year old Vignesh Gopal
was selected from his
school to attend the MUN
Conference held in Washington DC. He was given
the assignment of representing the USA attended
committee sessions for 4
days. At the end of the conference, Vignesh was
awarded "Outstanding Delegate". “I could never have
done this had I not been
prepared to develop and
write my thoughts and then
to present them as public
speeches,” said Gopal.
“My success in the MUN
Conference is a result of
attending the YLP for the
past two years.”
The YLP began 8 years
ago with under 35 children
who were the children or
grandchildren of ETS employees. Through word of
mouth and the generosity
of ETS, the program has
spread to 150 attendees
with a waiting list of over 50
children. Says Shipos,
“Each year we receive
more and more inquiries
about the program and it
breaks my heart to have to
turn anyone away. But we
are at capacity both in facilities and in the 30 volunteers who are leading the
program. Some of our mentors travel from Atlantic City
and East Stroudsburg, PA
to support this effort.
That’s true commitment.”
Supporting the success of
the program are Dr. Todd
Greenwood, who combined
the Princeton Toastmasters
program with the ETS program, and ETS retiree,
Rose Mortenson, who cochairs the program yearly.
The children who participate represent multiple
counties and cities in New
Jersey and Pa, and like the
mentors, many travel long
distances for the opportunity to attend the program.

Flashback, What Do
You Remember of
Speaking & Leadership Skills for Local Teens—Levittown Leader
2011-2012?
The Levittown Leader published a story about the
Doylestown Toastmasters
Youth Leadership Program. November 30, 2011
- Most of us would prefer to
be the corpse at a funeral,
rather than give the eulogy.
That popular saying may
be an exaggeration, but it
captures the panic that
besets most of us at the
thought of standing in front
of a group to speak.
"Everyone will see how
nervous I am, I'll look like
an idiot, I'll sound like a
fool!"

Toastmasters

experience with the
Communications
Class of Delaware
County Community
College.
Imagine not only conquering that fear, but doing it as
a teen—before your first
college interview or job
interview, maybe even before your first date! That is
what Mike Powers, President of the Doylestown
Toastmasters club, sets
out to do for the young
people who attend his classes in public speaking.
In our schools, students
are often assigned a project culminating in a
speech or presentation in
front of the class. Good
experience, in theory—
except that, very often, no
speaking skills are taught
in conjunction with the assignment. For most students it is an awful experience, repeated all too often
throughout their school
years and into their work
lives.
Mr. Powers emphasizes
that the Toastmasters
technique offers kids and
adults alike the skills to
speak to and even sway
the opinion of the crowd. It
then provides the practice
in using those skills, combined with honest but positive peer feedback. Learning to receive and give
constructive criticism is key
to gaining skill and comfort
as a speaker.
So dedicated is Mr. Powers to helping teens reach
their potential as speakers
and leaders that he regularly volunteers his time
and energy, conducting
eight week sessions of the
Toastmasters
Youth leadership program
for teens. Despite his already hectic schedule, he
agreed to add a fall class
this year at the Fallsington
Library.
Graduation night on November 9 showcased the
impressive skill and progress made during the
course. Kids who had spoken so quietly on the first
night that they could barely
be heard now projected
loudly and clearly to the
audience. Those who had
begun with nervous mannerisms stood poised as
they addressed the group.
And what did they talk
about? These were no fluff
pieces. They addressed
difficult social issues:
Should marijuana be legalized? Should there be a
mandatory draft in the
USA? What is the significance of the national debt
to future generations?
Mr. Powers points out that
this is not a competition.
It's about personal progress and reaching one's
own potential. No one will
become the next Ronald
Reagan in one eight week
period, but this course can
certainly set one on the
path toward overcoming
fear and gaining confidence.
The parents of the graduates were thrilled with the
results of the class and are
anxious to have their kids
take it again, and to bring
siblings. The best tribute,
though, came from the students themselves. Without
exception, the kids were
proud of their progress and
happy that they took the
course. All agreed: "Mr.
Powers is awesome!"

Public Service Announcement Commentary & Spotlight
Many of our Toastmasters
leverage their abilities by
sharing their time and talent
with various non-profit /
charitable organizations.
There is no better way to
get to know your fellow
Toastmaster than to learn
what is near and dear to
their heart.
Spotlight on Rosario Licciardello & CONTACT.
I was listening to a speech
by Scott Noar of the Moorestown Area Toastmasters
on "Giving". I could not
wait to go up to congratulate him on such a fine
speech and ask a few
questions about the subject
"CONTACT Community
Help Lines". He took my
enthusiasm another step
further and let the people at
CONTACT know that I was
interested. Ever here the
word "VOLUNTOLD?"
After 2 years of successful
fund raising and working
the phone lines I now
serve on the Board of Directors working as hard as
ever to keep this wonderful
organization solvent.
CONTACT is a Non Profit
Organization that reaches
out to help homeless, child
pregnancy, alcohol and drug
dependent, depressed,
aged and the worse category of them all.....suicide. As
we learn to "speak" in
Toastmasters we learn to
"active listen" at CONTACT.....and there is no
greater life changing
"moment of truth" call than a
suicide call. CONTACT is
open 24 hours a day, 7 days
a week, 365 days a year. If
you want to know more
