The First Step

Pathways lets you build your communication and leadership skills with projects tailored to fit your interests and goals.

You can begin your Toastmasters educational journey on Pathways now by clicking on the “Get Started” button. This button will take you to the Toastmasters International website, where you can log in and navigate through the Pathways Journey. A short questionnaire, if answered at the beginning of your journey, will help you determine which paths might best suit your needs.

Pathways is a web-based program. Members can either download and print out the materials, or they can choose to purchase the printed material from Toastmasters International for an additional fee.
