Wheel & Anchor 'Companions for the Road' Program
Welcome to the application form for our 'Companions for the Road' program! Here's how it works. Once you've filled in your responses to the questions below, your application will be reviewed by our team consisting of our own staff and volunteers from the community. Your information will be kept completely confidential and will not be seen by anyone else in the program without your consent. All communications about connecting you with other potential travellers will be facilitated by our team. We also have an upcoming online 'meet & greet' webinar which you are encouraged to participate in - this will let you see and hear some of the other members in the program talk about themselves and their travel interests.
Our goal here is to make connections between suitable matches and facilitate conversations between like-minded travellers. While we'd certainly love it if you travel together on one of our programs, it is by no means expected and is absolutely NOT a requirement for participating in the program. Our mission for this community is to bring travellers together, and this is part of us fulfilling that mission.
Thank you for your participation, and please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions, comments, or feedback!
