Embark on a journey of personal and professional development through Pathways, Toastmasters’ new education program! Pathways is designed to help you build the skills you need to communicate and lead. It is comprised of 10 paths that teach more than 300 unique competencies:
As you progress through Pathways, you will:
Practice and improve your communication and leadership skills.
Give speeches in your club based on assignments in Pathways.
Challenge yourself to build and refine certain competencies and skills.
Complete a range of projects that include persuasive speaking, motivating others, creating a podcast and leading a group in a difficult situation.
Develop real-world, transferable skills in many different areas through Pathways—communication, leadership, management, strategic planning, service to others, public speaking and more.
The traditional education program has served Toastmasters for many years. However, much of the communication track hasn’t been updated since the 1970s. The Toastmasters Pathways learning experience is not a departure from the current program, because it builds on the established educational foundation. Pathways is a modernized learning experience suited to our changing global society. It offers more benefits and more opportunities to learn, grow and meet personal and professional goals. We now have the opportunity to develop additional skills we can use not just in our club, but at our job or in our community as well.
