Wayfinders – A powerful journey for young adults!

Belonging | Bridging | Becoming

  • Are you in your 20’s wanting to find a community of peers to develop your inner capacities to make a difference in the world?
  • Does four months living, learning and collaborating with your peers sound like the adventure you are looking for?
  • Do you know someone in their 20’s who is concerned about our world, but is not sure how to make a difference?
Wayfinders is a powerful journey – a two-month immersive residency where young adults from the same region live, learn, work, and play together. Held in beautiful retreat settings, Wayfinders provides participants the time, space, and skills to create better futures for themselves and their communities.

This pilot program is open to adults aged 21-29 living in the Greater Seattle and Puget Sound Region. It takes place at the Whidbey Institute on Whidbey Island, WA, and runs from January 23 to March 18, 2023.

There is NO COST to participants for the program. Pending additional funding, stipends may be available based on need.

Participants engage in a curriculum developed by esteemed educators and innovation leaders across the United States, emphasizing connection, civil life and leadership. Learning modules include decision making and conflict resolution, group facilitation, worldview literacy, professional networking and building resilience.

If you are between the ages of 21 and 29, living in the Puget Sound region, and interested in joining this first cohort, please apply: Wayfinders Application. The deadline to apply is November 15, 2022.

If you know someone who would benefit from this program and would like to nominate them, please fill out this form: Wayfinders Nomination Form
