The Walkabout Education Foundation (WEF) is creating, and preparing to launch, Version 2.0, building on the original, proven Walkabout Program (1500+ alumni from 37 years!) as the Walkabout Consilient School.

Watch this video for a glimpse at our proposal:

WEF is an independent, non-profit organization. Our mission is to develop challenge-oriented, experiential education programs in the Walkabout model. This time-tested approach to education provides students with a sense of self-confidence, community, life skills and core values at a critical and transformative time of life. We are a network of alumni, parents, educators and supporting foundations who believe that these programs empower individuals to dramatically improve themselves and the world around them.

Our work is to ensure that a Walkabout education remains available to high school students. We have a large group together already, but we need everyone – alumni, parents, like-minded educators and other supporters. Sign up now to join our effort at
