The Young Adult Toastmasters (YAT) Club, is dedicated to empowering the young individual's needs, unlocking their leadership potential and excelling their communication abilities through the Toastmaster International Program. 


The establishment of the Young Adult Toastmasters Club was the result of a thought stemmed out by active gaveliers from the Sri Lankan Orators Gavel Club (SLOGC), who could not continue their rich gavel club experience after reaching the age limit of 17. Their anxiousness and desire to continue further in the toastmaster program along with their similar aged peers gave way to the birth of the club.


The struggle, as usual, was to find an adequate number of members... the minimum 20 required to charter the club. This took almost a year, as those who were keen to join were either unemployed or forced to concentrate on higher studies. However, with tremendous support from young and inspiring leaders like Passionie Silva, Tharaka Kahaduwa, Fakhira Syed and Daphne Rodrigues, the club met its membership requirements and was charted in April 2012. The club holds with extreme gratitude and thanks to the untiring efforts of DTM Ashok Kumar, TM Farkhanda Syed and  DTM Ahmed Rizvi, who made all this possible, from a dream, to a vision, to reality.
