Getting started

Step 1.

  • We understand that for schools time is a precious commodity. Before going any further check your calendar to make sure that you have the time not only to run the event itself but also for the necessary preparation work.
  • Register you interest on our School Contact Form. We will reply to confirm that we’ve received your information. [ADD LINK]

Step 2.

  • Decide who will be responsible. You will need a project leader, who will also be the DEC's point of contact, but while you are discussing the project with colleagues or waiting to be contacted by DEC, you can open up the project responsibilities to other staff and students. You may have teaching assistants or a senior student body that would thrive on managing both the creative and practical aspects of Walk the World for Yemen.
  • Let's meet. A DEC staff member will be delighted to visit you during business hours for an informal meeting with your staff to discuss how Walk the World can work for your school. We can also give a presentation on Walk the World and our Yemen Crisis Appeal in one of your assemblies to educate and motivate your students.

Step 3.

  • Customise your Walk the World. When your students and colleagues understand the project and are committed to making it happen in your school – it's time to customise your exciting resources!
  • We will provide you with a suite of guides, templates and workshop outlines to guide you through the process of making key resources such as the map and the team pack. This will include useful guides of how to run your Walk the World project on the day of the walk.
  • Don't have the time to do it all yourself? Customising resources, organising staff and students, preparing the team packs... responsibilities such as these can be an exciting opportunity for responsible students and teachers assistants to learn and thrive.
