Apply today for three great workshops we’re offering to Trail to Every Classroom alumni in 2012!
Alumni workshops will provide an immersive experience where placed-based service learning content and pedagogy are explored in more depth, continuing to build upon the skills you learned in the original three workshops. These new professional development sessions are being offered this year to serve as a space to revisit key curricular topics and further develop the capacity of teachers to provide quality instruction to students along the Appalachian Trail.
The workshops are not cumulative and alumni are welcome to apply for one, two or all three in any region. As always, all workshops are offered free of charge and lodging, meals, camping equipment and materials will be provided.
Workshops for 2012:
Spring Workshop: Questing & Natural History in Virginia – May 4-6
Summer Workshop: Wilderness First Aid & Hike Leadership in New Hampshire – July 15-20
Fall Workshop: Trail Construction & Design in New York – October 5-7
Alumni are encouraged to attend the SUMMER workshop with a club member from their local A.T. maintaining club. If you’re a club member who is interested in attending the Summer Workshop, team up with an alumni and sign up or pass this along to someone in your club who may be interested! Club members are welcome to join the spring and fall workshops as well.
APPLICATION DEADLINE IS MARCH 15, 2012

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions – we want this process to be as easy as possible. We look forward to reconnecting with you 2012!
