Pathways Update (9/12/2019): View all the projects in your path!
Toastmasters International has changed Base Camp to provide members access to projects in all levels in the paths they are on. Until now, members could only access the projects in their current level. Please note that while you will be able to view all projects, the projects themselves have not changed and still build in complexity. Path progress will still need to be submitted in order.

See announcement email from Toastmasters International Education Services Team for details.

 

Designed to provide members improved opportunities to learn and grow, Toastmasters has revitalized our education program. Based on extensive research and member surveys, the program offers:
