Walking the Walk Youth Initiative

The Walking the Walk Youth Initiative is a nationally-recognized initiative that provides teenagers with experiences, skills, and resources necessary to live in a diverse world, deepen their own identities, and break through walls that distance and divide them from people of other religious, cultural, and economic backgrounds.

 

Field-tested in urban and suburban settings with schools and congregations of many faiths over the course of more than 10 years, the Walking the Walk Youth Initiative features an innovative curriculum designed by a multi-faith professional team with expertise in youth development, service-learning, and systems change. Each Walking the Walk group is led by a team of individuals charged with nurturing the best experience possible. Group Leaders are hired and trained by Interfaith Philadelphia to facilitate Walking the Walk sessions and coordinate partnerships with congregations and service sites.

 

For educators and leaders outside of the Philadelphia region, please check out our curriculum sample below and contact us if you are interested in starting a Walking the Walk program in your area!
