Through the years, there have been many Toastmasters clubs in prisons throughout the world. You might ask---how does that work? Do prison inmates fully participate in club activities? Do such clubs have their own officers? How do prison club officers get trained? How do they pay their dues? Can inmates participate in speech contests?
Prison clubs are funded via a “segment” of the Smedley Foundation where members and friends can make tax deductible donations that can be used to support dues payments and other expenses for prison clubs. That new “segment” now exists as part of the Smedley Fund, however procedures to manage donations and assure those donations go to the prison club of your choice have not been established. Ray Termini has been appointed District 54 “Prison Club Coordinator” and will be communicating with you regarding specific activities in District 54 and how you can participate.
