Are you having a hard time deciding if you want to be a youth mentor, outdoor and academic trip leader, chef, farmer, or teacher? Explore each of these roles on our 230 acre property in Northern California.
The Community Intern Program is a 10 to 12 month experience of living, working, growing, and learning as part of the Woolman educational community. Interns work in the garden, kitchen, as teaching assistants in the classroom, and as mentors for the students. As such, interns form an essential thread that helps weave together the fabric of life here. On any given day, you will find these magic-makers creating beautiful meals, planting seeds, harvesting roots, connecting with students, hugging, laughing, crying, supporting - doing the invaluable work of the heart - an organ that doesn't just pump blood through the body but synergizes all of its cells, organs, and systems. Indeed the interns here combine physically and intellectually hard work with deep heart-work, in a way that allows unique and emergent life to flow through the veins of this community.
In exchange for the invaluable time and energy of the interns, the program offers room and board and formalized learning opportunities through garden class, holistic cooking & nutrition class, intern seminar, and non-violent communication.
We are one small community, that is both whole and a part of something much larger than ourselves. The internship program reflects this. Interns bring their unique individual histories, questions, passions and connections here that enliven and enrich our community. Whether it be through wilderness awareness, social justice, gender issues, biking, conscious eating, community care, Tarot readings, vegan baking, or live-culture fermentation, the Woolman Community interns imagine, articulate, practice, and celebrate the questions and solutions that bring us closer to home in ourselves and in the living world.
If you are prepared to work hard for a community that you believe in, and one that believes in you, this may be the perfect place. Apply here:
