The Voice Gavel Club

What is The ‘Voice Gavel Club’?

The Voice Gavel Club, of District 86, Charter # 1699802, having been established on campus at the World Life Education Centre, originally in Markham Ontario almost two decades ago, is now most recently thriving and currently recruiting new members at our Oakville, Ontario campus. The Voice Gavel Club is affiliated with the renowned Toastmasters International organization, and aims to train youth between the ages of 14-18 in developing their public speaking and humanitarian leadership skills. We welcome new members under the age of 18, who are therefore not yet eligible to become regular members of Toastmasters International (membership being open to adults 18+ only).
