WHAT is People First and the A Life Like Yours Toastmasters? People First is an advocacy organization designed for and run by people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. It was started in the 1990’s and we keep that momentum going strong by inviting people of all abilities to join us and learn about advocacy priorities that affect them. A Life Like Yours Toastmasters is an adapted Toastmasters public speaking club that meets in combination with People First. During the Toastmasters portion of our meetings, we focus on learning about how to be good public speakers and helping others do the same.
