How Toastmasters Works:
Members learn by speaking to groups and working with others in a supportive environment. The Bethel Toastmasters club is made of 10-20 people who meet on the first and third Monday of each month for up to two hours. Each meeting gives members and guests several opportunities:
- Guests and members present one- to two-minute, impromptu speeches about assigned topics.
- Members learn how to plan and conduct meetings.
- Members present speeches based on projects from the Pathways learning experience—Toastmasters' education program. Projects cover topics such as speech organization, vocal variety, language, gestures and persuasion.
- Every speaker is assigned an evaluator who points out speech strengths and offers suggestions for improvement.
- New members are offered the opportunity to work with a mentor
