Toastmasters empowers individuals to become more effective communicators and leaders.
Members realize the benefits of Toastmasters through proven educational programs. It is important to motivate members to participate in Toastmasters’ educational programs and activities.
The education 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.
