Central Region Walking Challenge

Sponsored by AARP South Dakota and America Walks, this part-time distance-learning fellowship program covers leadership development, coalition-building, walkable community design, local public policy, and strategic planning. In addition to studying an online curriculum, you will complete community assignments, participate in video-conferenced discussion forums, and receive one-on-one coaching from an experienced mentor to help you develop a personal Walking Action Plan for your community.

Requiring a commitment of about 5 hours per week for 6 months, the AARP Central Region Walking College is open to residents of South Dakota, North Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa, and Nebraska, and free of charge. However, Fellowships are limited and the application process is competitive. Applications are due Friday, April 15!
