Our Weekly Workshops meet Tuesdays through Thursdays, 9 AM to 3 PM. There is a $15 daily fee to cover the costs. Lunch and snacks will be included. These gatherings include a variety of outings, as well as a curriculum and skills-based approach to help the members in learning and expanding their everyday skills and interactions. We focus on healthy living and focus on fitness-based activities.

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.

Sonya Olson is Woolly’s life coach. Sonya has had the privilege to spend this past year with our group and has built many relationships. She 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.
