Coach a Club

Help a club regain its vigor.

The Club Coach program is a unique program that is both challenging and rewarding. From time to time, a club may experience a drop in membership or may not seem as healthy or vibrant as it once was. The goal of the Club Coach program is to give these clubs some extra guidance and help them get “back on their feet.”

A Club Coach is trained to work with the entire club, including its officers and members, and reinvigorate the experience of being a Toastmaster.

This program works in conjunction with the Club Ambassador Program, and together, they form key cornerstones of District 101’s club growth efforts.

  • Are you interested in helping a club as a Club Coach?
  • Do you think your club could use a little help from a Club Coach?

Either way, you have come to the right place.

For Individuals

Becoming a Club Coach

  • Do you have experience rebuilding a club that had only a few members?
  • Do you know how to help others to reach their potential?

If so, coaching a club might be a great opportunity to grow your skills and give back to the community.

As a Club Coach, you will be assigned to a club with fewer than 12 members. You will help the current officers to rebuild the club, regain members, and earn the “Distinguished Club” designation.

Here is a sample of what you can achieve:

  • Develop team-building skills
  • Expand leadership experience
  • Increase proficiency as a facilitator and negotiator
  • Develop diplomacy skills
  • Share expertise
  • Invest in the future of Toastmasters
  • Earn credit toward a leadership project

If you’re interested in helping a struggling club, contact the Club Coach Chair at clubcoaching@d101tm.org.

For Clubs

Getting a Club Coach

  • Does your club have fewer than 12 members?
  • Can your club use help from outside to regain strength, to get another point of view, and to help you organize better meetings?

If so, a Club Coach can provide the help your club needs to right the ship and get back on course.

A Club Coach will work together with the officers and members of your club to create a plan to rebuild the club. The coach will assist the officers in implementing this plan, with the ultimate goal of earning the “Distinguished Club” designation — or even higher.

If your club has fewer than 12 members, it qualifies for the Club Coach program. Discuss the situation with your club officers and contact the Club Coach Chair at clubcoaching@d101tm.org to request a coach.
