What is Toastmasters?
Since 1924, Toastmasters International has helped millions of men and women become more confident when communicating with others. The Toastmasters network of clubs and its learn-by-doing program were created to help you become a better speaker and leader. Why pay thousands of dollars for a seminar when you can join a Toastmasters club for a fraction of the cost and have fun in the process?

What is the Pathways learning experience?
Pathways is Toastmasters’ exciting, interactive and flexible education program. It focuses on five core competencies: Public Speaking, Interpersonal Communication, Strategic Leadership, Management and Confidence. With 11 paths to choose from (and more in development), you have the option to pick which skills you want to focus on.
How does Pathways work?
Sign in to Pathways and take the online assessment, which will suggest a learning path based on your goals.
As a Toastmasters member, you will receive one free path when you join. Progress through your path by completing projects, giving presentations at club meetings and implementing feedback, all done at your
own pace. Each path has five levels and you’ll start by mastering fundamentals before working your way up to demonstrating your expertise. Best of all, Pathways is available online or in print and is translated into ten languages!
