Pathways is the education program that Toastmaster’s members use to guide themselves through speaking challenges to reach new heights both personally and professionally.

Members choose from 11 unique learning Paths and work through five different levels of increasing complexity with two to three projects per level for a total of at least 14 projects per path. Each project focuses on a single, specific theme to help members improve their communication and leadership skills in a particular area.
