Every Club Needs a Pathways Champion

Submitted by D 13 Pathways Team

A Pathways Champion, in conjunction with the Base Camp Manager, is a point person in your club who answers questions about Pathways or finds the answers for your club’s members.  A club Champion shares the Pathways resources and explains the Pathways education program structure and rules. 

The Pathways Champion is encouraged to give speeches about the Pathways learning experience. It is a substantial topic for club speeches, and especially well-suited for the Level 1 project “Research and Presenting.”  Volunteering as a Champion is an effective way to develop leadership skills and may even qualify as a Pathways project.

The Navigator, the tutorials inside Base Camp, and the Toastmasters International website will get all members started with critical information. The Pathways Facebook group and the District 13 website contain links to additional valuable tools and resources.

At your next meeting look around the room. Who has expressed the most curiosity about Pathways? Who enrolled first? Who has made the most progress? Ask that person to be the Pathways Champion at your club.

Or perhaps that person is you.
