8 Great Ways to Make a Difference

Woolman's strength comes from its community of supporters; it's people like you who make our work possible. Here are ten ideas for helping us to make the world a better place through service and learning:

  1. Financial Support

    Your financial contribution will make it possible for our program to grow and touch the lives of a diverse group of young people who want to make a difference in the world. Donations to the Woolman Semester scholarship fund give assistance to students in need, and help keep our student population diverse and thriving. You can donate online or send a check to The Woolman Semester School, 13075 Woolman Lane, Nevada City, CA 95959. 
  2. Recommend our Programs to Educators and Students

    High School teachers are among the best advocates for the Woolman Semester, and many students are enabled to come here because of the support of their teachers and guidance counselors. If you know a great educator who believes in progressive, experiental learning, please ask them to tell their students about us. And of course if you know students, tell them too.
  3. Tell Your Friends

    Most people find out about Woolman by word-of-mouth, and it's incredibly important for helping people learn about Woolman and the work we are doing. Chances are, you know someone who could benefit from an experience at Woolman. Tell adults about the Woolman Intensive workshops, let teens know about the Woolman Semester, and spread the word to families about our Summer Camps and Family Work Camp.
  4. Join Us on Facebook and Twitter

    Our thousands of facebook fans form an incredible support network for Woolman. If you haven't already, it only takes a moment to become a fan. Even more importantly, please tell your friends to do the same. On twitter you'll become one of the first to know about what's going on here, and you can help spread the word.
  5. Host a House Party

    Woolman house parties are a popular way for alumni, supporters, and prospective students to come together and share stories and ideas from Woolman. Check our events schedule for upcoming parties in your area, and if there isn't one, consider throwing your own! We'll support you with publicity .
  6. Link to Us

    Have a website, blog, or participate in online forums? Put up a link to Woolman! This really helps our page ranking.
  7. Attend Woolman Semester events

    Coming to student presentations and events is a great way to participate. Our students love to share their ideas with the larger community, and their presentations are often lively, entertaining, and inspiring. Check our events schedule for more information.
  8. Work for Positive Change in Your Own Community

    The best way to carry on the spirit of Woolman is to work for peace, justice, and sustainability in your own community. Contact us and let us know what you're doing!
