2017 PATHSTAR ALCATRAZ SWIM PROGRAM: OCTOBER 1-9, 2017
PATHSTAR is looking for 4 teams of two or more participants who are inspired by PATHSTAR’s mission and want to be agents for change in their community. This is a minimum one year commitment starting from the time of the acceptance of your team in July 2017 through the Alcatraz Swim Week October 1-9, 2017 and with follow-up back home through July of 2018. Your team will partner with PATHSTAR in local and national fundraising, community education, preparation for and participation in the Alcatraz Swim Week, including swimming from Alcatraz Island to San Francisco, sharing your experiences and learning with your family and community through implementing change in your life, and speaking to community groups and conferences.
PATHSTAR is looking for participants with the drive, courage, and self determination to change their lives and influence the lives of those around them. The greatest underlying principal is community building and team work. That is why PATHSTAR’s program requires teams of two or more people from a given community to participate in the program together.
We request that team mates complete the application together and encourage support from family, friends and local community groups, churches, agencies, or employers. PATHSTAR encourages letters of recommendation that describe the values, character, commitment to follow through, and reputation for community involvement of an individual team member or the team as a whole. PATHSTAR encourages team members to be sponsored and supported as representatives of the community before they leave for the Alcatraz Swim Week.
