Mercury Rising Toastmasters Gavel Club

Jane Marie Kennedy has brought to mainland China the first Toastmasters club for those under the age of eighteen.  

Gavel clubs are very popular in Hong Kong high schools because they serve both as a speech class and leadership training opportunity. I found this Gavel club promotion from Singapore on YouTube and I would like to make Mercury Rising video and put it on YouKu and ZZConnect.
Jane Marie: "I got the idea from Sally and tegory’s Youth Leadership Program and Fred, a Hong Kong Toastmaster and public high school principal, who uses both YLP and Gavel to teach communication and leadership skills to teenagers. The school, in our case the Sino-US Program pays a one-time charter fee of $50 and $48 a year thereafter. The students needn't pay any dues but collect monies for any group activities." 

Mercury Rising Gavel club meets at #47 High School on Friday afternoons from 1:00 to 2:00 pm. Please contact for more information.
