District 61 Mentoring Program
District 61 believes in a mentorship approach that is based on an experienced person (mentor) working with a less experienced person (mentee) as peers – including mutual respect. Our objective is to provide an environment where members learn directly from each other and develop stronger relationships with each other. In each case, the member is learning – the mentee is learning a skill, while the mentor is demonstrating and learning through leadership. Members will get much more out of Toastmasters in an environment where they can achieve their specific goals with the help of others and have strong inter-personal bonds.

We look forward to a healthier, happier and more vibrant District 61 through Mentorship. A wonderful example of this is Toastmasters club MDPW and you can see why in Julie Baldwin-Davis' article called "Hareness the Power of Mentoring".
