Welcome to the Just Listen to Me Toastmasters Gavel Club website!
JLTM is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping young adults grades 6 through 12 improve their public speaking skills. Through weekly meetings, speech competitions, and peer feedback, members develop communication skills that greatly help them in school and interviews. Mentors (experienced alumni members) also contribute their knowledge by giving an evaluation at the end of every meeting. To further growth even more, we host seminars over various topics, such as interviewing skills and college applications.

Thanks everyone for a great fall semester! We hope that you all had a lot of fun at the Winter Potluck, and cheers to another great semester come January. Highlights from the potluck can be found in the club photos archive.
This year, we decided to start something new called the Attendance Club, where we keep track of our most proactive and contributing members and reward them at the end of the semester with prizes (including money !!). We're very pleased to announce the first winners of the Attendance Club: (drumroll please...)
