Just thank you!

Page, is a young college student, giving his time to my Youth Speaking Program.

Thank you for your support of this program. This is a unique life adventure. It is amazing this adventure called Toastmasters it can take us in so many directions. But only if you choose it. Certainly one of the most important people ever, says things so clearly.

​Page, what the future holds no one knows, but you are in all the right places now.  This adventure life and Youth Leadership is amazing, grasp it and study Albert Einstein.​ 

This youth program does not happen without special teachers!  Cheryl Rice has provided us this opportunity, sadly without teachers like her this program rarely happens.  Possibly you can think back to age 10, did you have this YLP type of program?

Possibly you will take your time here with Toastmasters, your education, and the growth and pleasure you receive from these children, to reach another goal and become a great leader?

It took me so many years to realize my calling. What you learn at Toastmasters  will last a lifetime. The impact these children will have on your life will be amazing and the impact you will have even more amazing!

Is your calling teaching why public speaking is so valuable to children?
So many have found their calling, some are; Mother Teresa, Gandhi, Ronald Reagan, Winston Churchill, Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Martin Luther King, Zig Ziglar and Cheryl Rice, to name a few. Just as I remember what Walt Disney said " If you can dream it, you can do  it."

I found my calling in 2003 by joining Tampa Toastmasters, thanks to Distinguished Toastmaster (DTM), Sanford Sabel.

See what  the students say:


"I hear, I know.  I see, I remember.  I do, I understand."
