Yale Toastmasters Club
The Yale Toastmasters Club was chartered on August 1, 2001. Our mission is to provide a mutually supportive environment to develop and improve communication and leadership skills.
Each meeting members have opportunities to give prepared speeches, and to practice skills in impromptu speaking. Evaluation of prepared speeches provides encouragement and tips for improvement. Additional member benefits include: improved listening and thinking skills, and experience in conducting meetings.
The Toastmasters Educational Program leads beginning speakers through an initial series of 10 speaking assignments that focus on core elements of public speaking. Experienced speakers can select from 15 advanced manuals geared to specific career goals. Among these advanced topics are: Public Relations, Technical Presentations, and Interpersonal Communications.
The Yale Toastmasters Club provides education and training in the development of public speaking and leadership skills not only for members of the Yale community, but also welcomes others for whom the meeting times or locations of other local Toastmasters clubs are not convenient.
Club dues are $6.00 per month. In some cases dues may be reimbursable by your department as an education expense.
