THANK YOU to all who attended, sponored or volunteered at our 2022 Spring Fling! It was a wonderful evening filled with music, food, fun and kindness.
Every Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday (unless otherwise stated)
9:00 AM to 3:00 PM
*Our Weekly Workshops are on hold until this fall. No need to worry! Our summer camps are in full swing! Click here to learn more about our Summer of FUN!!!
We are taking a new and improved approach to our weekly workshops attended by young adults with diverse needs and disabilities. We have added days so that we now meet weekly Tuesdays through Thursdays, as well as extended our time to 9 AM to 3 PM. There is a $15 daily fee to cover the costs. Lunch and snacks will be included.
Our weekly workshops will now have more outings, as well as a more curriculum and skills-based approach to help the members in learning and expanding their everyday skills and interactions. We will take a stronger look on healthy living, as we will add more time throughout the workshops focused on fitness-based activities. We also plan to offer more work experience opportunities and can offer transportation during the workshops if requested to these opportunities.
These workshops are held at Mammoth Sports Academy in Meriden, Kansas, and are led by Kathryn (Kak) Eli-Schneider. Kak has over 30 years of experience working with students with diverse needs and abilities. Most recently, she retired from her position as a transition educator at Washburn Rural High School in Topeka, Kansas. She is very enthusiastic about providing inclusive opportunities for individuals of all abilities, as well as providing hands-on daily living and social skills training in community settings. Kak has played key roles in implementing multiple new programs benefiting many, and is no doubt going to provide positive leadership and direction with the Woolly Farms Foundation.
We have also added Sonya Olson to our staff as the life coach. Sonya has had the privilege to spend this past summer with many of our members during the Summer of Fun events. She has built many relationships and is a talented and valued member to our team.
Our Weekly Workshops build self-confidence and improve overall well-being by providing participants opportunities to explore their creativity through arts, strengthen communication skills, find placement in community-based jobs, and ultimately lead to greater independence.
