About Our Club
We are pleased to announce that Cedar Park, TX, has their own 4-H Gavel Club, a year round youth public speaking program.  Designed specifically for Middle and High School students.  However, being joined with District 8 Williamson county 4-H we accept Clovers K-2nd with their parent involvement.  Our older 4-H youth members range from 3rd grade through Seniors aka High School Graduation.
 
We are delighted to be officially recognized June 2018 by Toastmasters International We are sponsored by the Lakeline Toastmasters club of Cedar Park (Area 71, District 55, Division K)  as a 4-H Gavel Club. As far as we know, the first recognized 4-H  Toastmaster Youth Gavel Club program in the Austin Area.We started by using the Toastmaster Youth leadership program. We are chartered club members of Williamson county 4-H which is the largest youth development program in Texas.

It is a GREAT group of kids and is amazing to be a part of it. The weekly speaking practice will improve skill and confidence when speaking in front of a group, whether it be from doing timed impromptu speeches, giving a full speech, or participating in games.

4-H youth are also the ones running this club. With the help of sponsors and parents of course, all of our seven club officers are kids! This gives our youth the opportunity to lead a group using the 4-H  philosophy 'learn by doing"

A few interesting facts:
Our journey began in January 2018.  Our first meeting March 8, 2018, started under the TM Youth Leadership Project, chartered June 2018 as a Gavel Club.
Cedar Park 4H Gavel Club is the only current Toastmaster Gavel Club in the greater Austin Area. Specifically, located in Cedar Park, TX – There was one other gavel club in Austin, but it folded in 2017
 
The history of Gavel Clubs in Texas is that they first became a part of the Toastmaster family in 1977.  There are 60 to 70 active clubs in TX: majority are in Houston, Plano, Dallas and Frisco. 

 

Approximately 500+ Gavel Clubs are actively registered with Toastmasters International, which includes the international clubs.

Please join us at one of our meetings!  We look forward to meeting you.

 

The Toastmasters Mission
A statement of shared values

Every Toastmasters club shares the same mission, clearly defined in the following mission statement:

We provide a supportive and positive learning experience in which members are empowered to develop communication and leadership skills, resulting in greater self-confidence and personal growth.

Through this mission, each Toastmaster gains a clear understanding of the club's purpose, and the organization as a whole benefits from a shared set of values and goals.
