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. 

Walking College

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.


Walk2Connect programming helps develop Walking Movement Leaders. We provide them with skills, education, and inspiration to connect with neighbors and build communities that meet their unique needs.

National Walking Summits

National Walking Summits celebrate projects, programs, and practitioners that promote pedestrian-friendly communities.
