WE'RE EMPOWERING YOUNG WOMEN
with our Toastmasters Junior workshops
In the summer of 2019, local high school girls participated in our Toastmasters Junior Art Docent program. A collaboration between our Toastmasters Junior program and the Gibbes Museum of Art, we introduced them to art and public speaking in a low-stress environment where a friendly facilitator and their peers were their mentors. In June these girls began attending twice-weekly small group workshops designed to expand their knowledge of art and history while boosting their communication and leadership skills. Then they selected a work of art from the Black Refractions: Highlights of the Studio Museum in Harlem and created a tour and presentation to deliver to their family, facilitators, and peers, along with members of the public.

That program was the second in our Toastmasters Junior series for high school girls . For the first, held in autumn 2018, we collaborated with Art Pot, the first Hispanic multicultural center in South Carolina, to offer a youth leadership and public speaking program. See some of the photos!
