Approaching Walden Application

Approaching Walden applications must include the following in order to be considered complete:

  • A completed application form (see form below)
  • A resume highlighting your teaching experience
  • A statement indicating why you want to attend this seminar and what you wish to bring back to the students/youth with whom you work. ***Note: Spaces are limited. We have received record-breaking numbers of applications for the past several years, making the program more competitive than ever.  We wish we could welcome everyone who wants to participate, but while spaces are still limited, we give significant weight to these personal statements in getting to know the applicants and making our final decisions.

Application Deadline: We will begin review of applications for Approaching Walden 2020 on March 16.  Those who apply by March 15 will receive preferred consideration and will hear about their application status by the end of March. Those who submit on or after March 16 can expect to hear from us within two weeks of submitting their application about availability and their application status. When spaces are filled for the year, we will continue to accept applications for the waitlist and for the 2021 program, dates to be determined.

Please contact us if you have questions about the application process or timeline.

Questions: Contact Whitney Retallic, Director of Education, or by phone at 781-259-4721.
