All new members are assigned a Mentor when they join the Club. A Mentor is an experienced Toastmaster. They assist and guide new members for their first three speeches.
Benefits of having a mentor
The benefits to the new Toastmasters are:
- someone to ask questions and to explore speech writing ideas with
- receiving individual feedback as well as feedback from speech evaluators
- learning new skills and refining your speaking skills
Some new Toastmasters are confident and don’t need a lot of mentoring. Others may be less confident and value having a guiding mentor.
