America Walks is now accepting applications for the 2019 Walking College. This is an online, interactive educational program for experienced walkable community advocates. Walking College Fellowships are awarded to community change agents working alone, in organizations, or in professions such as public health, planning, transportation, or education.
Potential Walking College Fellows are individuals who have:
-A passion for making their communities more walkable and livable, and a vision for what that would look like;
– A desire to develop a network of peer mentors and learn to advocate more effectively for walkable community policies and funding;
– A willingness to invest personal time and energy in training.
Participants learn hard and soft skills for changing their communities and create a Walkability Action Plan to implement. The program lasts for about 6 months.
