Intern Interview

Brianna Beyrooty, Admissions and Outreach Director
Tuesday, June 28, 2016

Welcome to our first interview in our new series! We hope to catch up with past interns and see what they are up to! Interns are magic-makers, dream builders, nutrient dense meal-makers, highly qualified homework helpers, thoughtful, intelligent, charismatic, and an irreplaceable part of the Woolman Community.  The community intern program is a 10 month experience of living, working, growing, and learning as part of the Woolman Educational Community.  For the past 20 semesters we have been so grateful for those who have worked here!

Interns in the Garden!

Interns play an integral part in the garden. They spend 10+ hours in the garden a week doing everything from seed starting to pruning an entire orchard.  Intern garden time is a great way to bond over hard work and see something transform with their efforts every week.

Monday mornings start with a garden check-in, starting with silence interns share thoughts to start the week with. This is a way unique and effective way to ease into the week with a clear mind and heart.  With the intern’s hard work and dedication the garden gets the attention and love it deserves.

Mentoring at Woolman

When I first learned about the Woolman internship, one component that piqued my curiosity was the mentorship program. The idea of being a mentor for a group of teens was intriguing but also nebulous—what exactly does being a mentor look like? Is there some particular way one acts as a mentor? Throughout my time here, I have been delightfully surprised by the many ways that mentorship exists here at Woolman.

An (Early) Morning in the Life: The Community Internship at Woolman

Danya Morris, Community Intern

I don’t always wake up before 6 AM—but when I do, it’s probably Monday, when I make breakfast. Monday is special because we all try to show up and eat together. There are announcements, games, and appreciations, read out of the appreciation jar handcrafted by none other than Aria, a fellow community intern. All in all I’d say I have a great reason to be up before the sun (especially since I only have to do it once a week). This is what happened two Mondays ago—an ordinary Monday, the second to last of the semester.
