Students should bring their own water bottles, and dress for the
weather. Practice good skin care, by a wearing long-sleeved shirt,
long pants and socks, applying a "safe" bug spray to avoid tick
and mosquito bites. On sunny days, I recommend wearing a brimmed hat or apply a natural/non-toxic sunscreen on your
face, neck and hands.

Weather updates will appear on our NETWALKING facebook page.  Please contact Wendy to learn more about these outdoor programs – 884-8505 or wendy@netwalkri.com.

 
NETWALKING FOR YOUNG ADULTS (Ages 13+)
 
Facilitation available upon request - Participants will learn networking skills while exploring various career opportunities in Human Ecology, Education, Health, and related fields, including Finance and Economic Development.  Private sector jobs relating to the environment will present many opportunities to lead Rhode Island’s economic growth over the next 30 years.  By sharing stories, interests, knowledge, ideas, and personal contacts, we will engage ourselves in working together to improve the world in which we live.

 
Each session will begin with personal introductions and the sharing of brief stories to help to teach various approaches to networking.
 
Facilitator: Wendy Fachon, MBA, Certified in RIPQA for Youth Work.  Over a span of 35 years, Wendy has held positions of high responsibility in publishing, financial services, manufacturing, sales, and marketing.  She has built her own extensive web of personal connections through involvement in various industries and numerous networking associations.

CLUB LEADER TRAINING

Wendy offers afterschool enrichment program training for facilitators working with all ages.  The concept of a "Walking Classroom" promotes experiential learning, which gives context to the standard learning that happens during the school day, and therefore strengthens academic engagement.

STORYWALKER (Ages 5-12) is supported with audio material for children learning to read and master the basics of math.
Older elementary ages focus on developing communication skills - conversation, interviewing, creative writing, and social media.  In this program, students participate in a few presentations given by business owners
.

NETWALKING (12+) is about connecting career professionals with potential interns.  It can also be used as a no-cost casual approach to improve a company's internal communications, creative problem solving,  employee morale, and overall corporate wellness.    Please contact us for assistance in scheduling and organizing a local Netwalking event leadership training.


This is a prime opportunity for students to develop networking and interviewing skills.
