AFTERSCHOOL NETWALKING & STORYWALKING

TUESDAYS - Quidnessett Elementary in North Kingstown

WEDNESDAYS - Lincoln Lower School in Providence

THURSDAYS - Fallon Memorial Elementary in Pawtucket

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. 

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

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 (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.
