Roving Listener Corp

Roving Listener Corp Summer Program for Youth

For the past 14 summers, the Roving Listener Corp has gathered local neighborhood youth for 6-weeks in the summer to meet, explore, and connect the gifts and talents of our neighbors in the Mapleton-Fall Creek community.  Through these conversations, we meet new friends, build community, and make visible all of the abundance that is around us, but is too often overlooked and undervalued.  Interested students (ages 12-18) are welcome to apply to be a Summer Roving Listener (applications will be available in March, 2022).

Roving Listener Corp for All Ages

This year, thanks to a generous grant form the Indianapolis Foundation, we have expanded the Roving Listener Corp to year-round, and have added a multi-generational component.  People of all ages are welcome to participate as we continue to build strong connections to our neighbors one porch at a time.  The Roving Listener Corp typically gathers twice a month on Saturday afternoons from 1:00-3:00pm.  We begin at Broadway UMC, divide into groups (an experienced Rover is with each group), plan our route, go visit with some neighbors, and gather back at Broadway to debrief and populate our “gifts & talent” wall.

Roving Listener Corp Neighbor Walks: Next one is on Saturday, October 23, 2021

People of all ages are invited to join us on Saturday, October 23rd from 1:00-3:00pm as we spend the afternoon meeting our neighbors and learning about their gifts and talents.
