Administrative Staff

Job Title Starting Date: Description
Grant Writer

We are looking for an experienced grant writer to seek out new potential sources of funding for our school and represent our program to those funders. Here at The Woolman Semester School, we are changing lives with our community and land-based semester-style education, with classes that range from Peace Studies and Global Thinking to Farm to Table and Non-Violent Communication. Woolman interweaves life and learning, whether practicing Restorative Justice work on campus or on one of our four week-long academic trips. Our students come from all over the country, representing many different socio-economic backgrounds, made possible by the large amount of financial aid given each semester. The specifics of this position are flexible — it could end up being an on-campus role or an occasionally visiting campus role. It could be part-time or full time. And it could develop into an ongoing position, but right now, we will be starting with a trial period of a fourth to a half of a year.

Summer Camp

Job Title Starting Date: Description
Teen Leadership Camp Counselor

Being a counselor at Woolman's Summer Camp means living, working, growing, and learning as part of the Woolman community. Counselors are fully integrated into the life, work, and play of the Woolman campers, and your job is to enrich their experience through deep connection and joyful adventure. Counselors live with campers in a lodge situated on campus. They facilitate learning and growth of children into a greater awareness of themselves and others, lead games and songs, manage behavior, teach activities, adorn yourself in costumes and personify characters of your own creation, and participate in the glorious daily life of a Quaker community.  Being a counselor at camp is fun, challenging and rewarding work.
