Do you like working with children? Are you already involved in a Youth Leadership Program or Gavel Club somewhere in District 55? We are building a directory of current Clubs and YLP programs and would love to hear from you.
We currently have a thriving 4H Gavel Club in Williamson County. Contact YLP Chair Diana Wiggins (email HERE) for details or to learn more about starting a new Gavel Club.
The Hill Country Toastmasters Club is sponsoring a brand new Gavel Club in Boerne. The Young Orators Gavel Club (#07456473) chartered in May and is actively seeking new members. This Club meets every 1st and 3rd Thursdays from 4:30pm to 5:30pm at Kronkosky Place in Boerne (17 Old San Antonio Rd, Boerne, TX 78006. www.kronkoskyplace.org).
In San Antonio, we have a 4H Gavel Club in Helotes that is actively seeking new members as well. The Gaveliers resumed meeting in September after taking the summer off. They are having an open house on October 14th 7-8pm. The Gaveliers 4-H Club meets at Northwest Hills Christian Church (back building), 9560 Potranco Rd, San Antonio, Texas 78251 at 7pm-8pm on 2nd and 4th Mondays. For details, contact Esther Palacios at 210-846-0360 or email Edward Mayberry (email HERE).
Also, in San Antonio, we have a large, long time Youth Leadership Program with Northside Independent School District. Please reach out to Melissa Moran (email HERE) if you are interested in assisting as an instructor.
This is just a small glimpse into the Youth Programs we have throughout the District. We are developing Best Practices and a pool of experts who can assist with new youth programs. If you have an existing youth program to tell us about or would like to get involved, please let Diana Wiggins know.
Sponsoring a Youth Leadership Program can satisfy one of the DTM requirments.
