Congratulations to Toastmasters Graduates ! On May 9th students presented their public speaking skills via a fun themed ceremony and received a certificate of completion. NYC NAF students voluntarily commit to participate in an 8 week series of workshops. The program leads NYC NAF students to deliver speeches with confidence, like professionals and gain leadership skills to advance in their career paths. This International Youth Leadership Toastmasters program is spear-headed by trained Toastmasters coaches who volunteer their time, effort and knowledge to develop NYC NAF High school student skills around public speaking. We congratulate and commend all the arduous efforts.
