Education is an important part of every Toastmaster’s journey, and it is a critical aspect of all club meetings around the world. Participating in Toastmasters’ education programs allows you to gain the valuable practice needed to develop your public speaking, communication, and leadership skills. The safe and supportive environment clubs provide allows you to learn at your own pace in a curriculum that has helped millions meet their personal and professional goals. Since Toastmasters was founded in 1924, our education programs have been driven by four guiding principles:
Experiential learning – By giving speeches and fulfilling leadership roles, you practice and improve.
Peer feedback – Grow and improve your public speaking and communication skills through honest and supportive peer evaluation.
Mentoring – Experienced mentors encourage, guide and support you in your goals and help you to achieve more than you thought possible.
Self-paced program – Develop skills at your own pace and comfort level.
