 Brampton - Once again, Brampton Library and Toastmasters have partnered to help youth ages 14 to 18 develop their communication and leadership skills so they can become leaders in business, industry and their community.

 Brampton Toastmasters Club #2347, Dist. #86 is sponsoring this initiative, which promises to give interested teens a chance to increase their self-confidence as they learn, make new friends and have fun. As an added bonus, certificates will be issued at the final session as part of a special graduation ceremony.

 Each session is conducted as a meeting, not a class, and everyone who takes part gets a Participant’s Notebook to help them along the way. The group selects officers who preside over the meetings, and remaining members are assigned other duties on a rotating basis, so everyone is actively involved. Discussions take place at each meeting, and participants also deliver short impromptu and prepared speeches while learning to apply the principles of listening, thinking and speaking.

 This exciting opportunity will take place at Brampton Library for nine weeks, beginning Saturday, September 7 to November 2, 2013. The sessions will be held in the Auditorium at the Library’s Four Corners Branch, 65 Queen St. E from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

 Space is limited to 24 teens. Youth interested in this free offering should register starting August 6, by visiting one of the Library locations or calling the Library at (905) 793-4636.
