Toastmasters Pathways is a learning experience that sets you on your journey of personaland professional development.

Pathways was developed with these benefits for members:

  • Recognition that comes earlier and more often in the educational journey
  • New technological resources to improve speeches and support meeting roles
  • Mobile access to educational materials (tablets)
  • Expanded video and digital content to facilitate learning among our global community of members
  • Stronger evaluation and mentoring components

Members advance through their paths in five levels of progressing complexity. The levels are defined this way:

  1. Mastering Fundamentals
  2. Learning Your Style
  3. Increasing Knowledge
  4. Building Skills
  5. Demonstrating Expertise

The idea is to build on what you learned in the previous level. The goal throughout the Pathways program is to not just learn, but to apply what you learn.
