Education Program

Membership Building Programs

The education program is an important part of every Toastmaster's journey and is a critical aspect of every club meeting around the world. The Toastmasters Education Program is based on a proven curriculum that enables you to develop your communication and leadership skills one step at a time. The program is built on four guiding principles that have been in place since Toastmasters was founded in 1924:

  • Experiential Learning–we learn by doing; by giving speeches and fulfilling leadership roles, we practice and improve
  • Self-paced Program–we learn best at our own pace and comfort level
  • Peer Feedback–through honest and supportive peer evaluation, we grow and improve
  • Mentoring–experienced members encourage, guide and support us in our goals and help us to achieve more than we thought possible

The program comprises two tracks: Communication and Leadership. The two tracks are not mutually exclusive; you may participate in both at the same time, if you wish. You progress through each track by completing a series of manuals that contain projects and evaluation guides. There are many opportunities for awards and recognition along the way.
