Become a Walking College Fellow

America Walks and AARP Colorado are looking for walkable community advocates who are interested in honing their skills and developing a statewide network of peers and mentors. If you are working to increase walking and improve pedestrian safety in your community, consider applying for a Fellowship with the Colorado State Walking College.

This statewide program is modeled after the Walking College – America Walks’ six-month, distance-education program for walkable community advocates across the country. Fellows will complete a series of modules covering leadership development, coalition-building, walkable community design, local public policy, and strategic planning. The instructional content includes online study materials, video-conferenced discussion forums with other Fellows, and community assignments. Each Fellow will receive one-on-one coaching from a Personal Mentor to assist them in developing a Walking Action Plan for their community.

Watch this video to get inspired by the stories of past Fellows!

Residents of Colorado who are interested in the program and able to commit about 5 hours per week (May – September) are invited to complete the application by Thursday, April 7th by clicking the link HERE. Fellowships are limited and the application process is competitive.
