Why are we getting a new education program?

In the 2010 strategic plan, the Toastmasters Board of Directors called for the education program to be revitalized. The Board stressed the need to modernize the communication track as well as renew the focus on leadership learning in the leadership track.

The traditional education program has served Toastmasters for many years. However, much of the communication track hasn’t been updated since the 1970s.

How is Pathways different?

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 you more benefits and more opportunities to learn, grow and meet personal and professional goals. You now have the opportunity to develop additional skills you can use not just in your club, but at your job or in your community as well.

If you would like to learn more about the history and development of Pathways, watch this video series.

How do I find out more?

Attend club officer training to learn more about the program (events are posted here). Each club will also be assigned an Ambassador and a Pathways Guide to help keep you informed and teach you the new program. Check out the Frequently Asked Questions for more information.
