What Is the Toastmasters Program?
Education is an important part of every Toastmaster’s journey, and it is a critical aspect of all club meetings around the world. Develop and practice communication and leadership skills in the safe, supportive environment of your club, working through projects and assignments that enable you to build real–world skills in a variety of disciplines. Learn at your own pace in a proven curriculum that was built on four guiding principles that have been in place since Toastmasters was founded in 1924.
The new Pathways Education Program is an exciting, flexible and interactive way to develop your skills and the opportunity to build up to 300 unique competencies.
How fast you learn is entirely up to you. There is no pass or fail in our program and we are here to support you in your growth just like how we have been supported when we first joined.
Every speech you make at our club will be evaluated by one of our more experienced members that will highlight your strengths, points to improve, and how to bring your next speech to the next level.
Master Impromptu Speaking by learning how to speak off the cuff for 1 to 2 minutes. Definitely the highlight of every meeting!
