I had the honor to participate in the 2017 Walking College. Taking part in this six month fellowship transformed me from an arm-chair walkability enthusiast into a full fledged community advocate for more walkable communities. The Walking College is administered by the national not-for-profit organization America Walks, through a grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The application period for the 2018 Walking College is coming soon. If you are passionate about walking but not sure how to make your community more walkable, here is your chance.   More information about the 2018 Walking College Fellowship can be found at: http://americawalks.org/walkingcollege/

The application process will be open from February 1st – 28th, and there’s an “Orientation to the Walking College” webinar on February 8th.  America Walks is an inclusive organization and is seeking applications from diverse individuals who are interested in getting more involved in the walking movement.
