Florida Building Bridges 2023-2024

We are delighted to announce the start of our Building Bridges Program in Florida!

This represents the start of Waldorf teacher education and builds on the foundations established for those who are taking (or previously completed) our Explorations Program. Interested others would be admitted with permission of Program Director Torin Finser at [email protected]

With in-person long weekends approximately once a month in Atlantic Beach, participants in Building Bridges will earn the equivalent of the first semester of teacher education, and upon subsequent entry in Antioch University can be awarded 7 graduate credits in advance standing. 

Those interested in this special opportunity in Florida should register asap to secure a space.
