The mission of a Toastmasters club is to provide a mutually supportive and positive learning environment in which every member has the opportunity to develop communication and leadership skills, which in turn foster self-confidence and positive growth.
Toastmasters provides numerous self-paced programs that allow members to progress as quickly or gradually as they wish. Members may choose to focus on their speaking skills or leadership skills (or both) and they complete projects leading to appropriate awards.
The member progress chart shows the progress made by each member of the club towards various Toastmaster awards. Progress is based on the number of speeches delivered or number of leadership projects completed (as defined in the manual).
