America Walks is proud to offer a variety of programs that empower communities to create safe, accessible, equitable, and enjoyable places to walk and move.
The Walking College offers participants an opportunity to hone their skills and knowledge around creating vibrant, safe, accessible communities for all. Paired with experienced advocates, fellows learn about the historical underpinnings of the car-centric transportation landscape, the basics of design and policy of non-motorized transportation, and develop essential leadership skills.
Community Change Grants
The Community Change Grant program supports the growing network of advocates, organizations, and agencies working to advance walkability. Grants are awarded to innovative, engaging, and inclusive programs and projects that create change and opportunity for walking and movement at the community level.
Technical Assistance for Walkable Communities
America Walks provides technical assistance and “rapid-response” services at no charge. We regularly receive questions on a variety of walking topics, including starting community groups, getting a crosswalk installed, passing a Vision Zero policy, and more. We respond with advice, best practices, case studies, and provide connections to other practitioners.
National Walking Summits
National Walking Summits celebrate projects, programs, and practitioners that promote pedestrian-friendly communities.
