How to use this platform

The first step for getting set up is to head to the Sign Up page to fill out a profile. You will be asked to agree to Community Guidelines for using the site.

Ready to get started? Wayside is divided into three main areas:


  1. Click ‘Join a group’ on the home page or ‘Groups’ in the side menu.
  2. Choose an area of interest from the various groups.
  3. You may start a new conversation under any group. It’s always good to check to see if others are already discussing your topic so that you can join in rather than start fresh.
    Your Settings:
     If you subscribe to a conversation you will be kept in the loop on any updates via email. You can easily adjust your email frequency settings under My Account/Profile—see more information here.

Over the coming months we will be developing new course content and working collaboratively with partners to share existing courses. If you have a course that you think Wayside users would benefit from, feel free to reach out!


We are working behind the scenes to gather blogs, articles and tools to help inspire change efforts. Visit often to see what’s new!
