About Us​

  Four years ago, a motely group of highschoolers bounded together, in Princeton New Jersey, to teach, mentor, and facilitate the growth of leadership skills among students. They established the PLE Toastmasters clubs, and continued to volunteer until college. They used materials from Toastmasters, a nonprofit public speaking organization, providing opportunities to learn, grow, and rise as leaders.


Our Mission

The biggest phobia in the world isn’t the fear of spiders, ghosts, or death: it’s public speaking. Over 70% of American adults suffer from speech anxiety. In an increasingly competitive academic environment, many have dismissed the need of public speaking. In reality, communication skills are imperative to not only academic growth, but also in creating opportunities much later in the future. As a result, many lack the confidence, experience, and ability to take lead. Only those who possess this valuable skill may thrive in society today. In creating this program, we hope to help those who fear this invaluable skill.
