We are the Walkabout Alumni Association (“WAA”), an independent, non-profit organization, launched in July 2014. The WAA mission is to serve the current and future Walkabout alumni community by:
(1) Sharing Information & News
(2) Providing Networking & Forum
(3) Offering Resources & Support
WAA also generally advocates for challenge-oriented, experiential education programs, collaborating with and supporting any and all Walkabout schools and programs, providing resources for their graduates. The 1400+ alumni of the original Walkabout Program, running from 1978 – 2014, are proof that this time-tested approach to education provides students with a sense of self-confidence, community, life skills and core values which serve them well and benefit others, throughout their lives.
We are a network of Walkabout Alumni, proud of our shared, heartfelt, invaluable experiences, who believe that the Walkabout education model empowers individuals to dramatically improve themselves and the world around them.
WAA exists to celebrate and support the Walkabout education model and to ensure it remains available to high school students. We have found and gathered many Walkabout Alumni already, but we need ALL alumni to connect with all those who, like you, are fortunate to have received a Walkabout education already! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to say hello and make sure you are on the list…
