Fallon Memorial School Netwalking Club visits the State House

NETWALKING: On the Move Networking
Wednesday, July 1, 5:30 - 7:00 pm
Meet at The Empowerment Factory (Studio #707)
Hope Artiste Village, 999 Main Street, Pawtucket

Netwalking seeks to bring youth together with other people in their community - professionals in small businesses, non-profits and civic agencies.
From 5:30-6:00pm we will have a discussion about how
walking connects to one another and provide some tips on engaging in interesting conversations while on the move.
At 6:00 we will step back in time, tour the Hope Artiste
Village, share it's rich industrial history and learn about
the new businesses that have taken over.

Please wear comfortable walking shoes; no high heels.

Netwalking Leaders: Wendy Fachon and Gail Ahlers. 401 365-1010. Please register here.

Netwalking and Storywalker programs will be offered to
Pawtucket Students through The Empowerment Factory.
Activities will incorporate children's literature, practical
math, natural science, expressive arts and social skills.
The morning program will be "Biomes" and the afternoon
program and be "Food, Fitness and Farming".

Students should bring their own water bottles, and dress for the
weather. On sunny days, we 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 

If you want more information, please contact Wendy Fachon at 884-1559 or Netwalking programs are free of charge unless otherwise noted.


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 (13+) 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.
