We encourage Walking the Walk alumni to stay connected to Interfaith Center programs. Walking the Walk alumni who are still in high school are invited to apply to be a Student Group Leader. Other alumni programs have included a college essay writing workshop, an intergenerational interfaith retreat, visits to other congregations, and community service projects.
Walking the Walk alumni have gone on to a great number of achievements after their participation including: attending some of the nation’s top colleges like Penn and Harvard; working as community organizers on various social justice issues; earning advanced degrees in law and medicine; and joining the Peace Corps and Americorps, all while continuing to engage their neighbors and ask curious questions about the world around them.
