If we have learned anything in our nearly 30 years’ experience in outdoor education, it is that getting kids outdoors matters.

If we have learned anything else, it is that getting kids outdoors can be a challenge. Determined to extend the outdoor experience to all youth, regardless of barriers, WOLF School began a new initiative: partnering with like-minded organizations and individuals committed to environmental education and leadership programs for youth. Through this web of community support, we are able to provide life-changing outdoor adventures to more of California’s underserved students.

CA Children in Low-Income Families

Economic

The realities of limited school budgets, under-resourced teachers, and financially struggling parents often outweigh even the greatest desires to enroll students in outdoor education programs. The WOLF School Scholarship Fund supports these students, giving equal access to those otherwise unable to get outdoors.

Cultural

Every individual has a story. And every individual’s story is different. Through partnerships with culturally diverse non-profits and schools, we aim to create outdoor learning environments where every student can feel comfortable to be themselves and enjoy their experience in nature, whatever their background or story.

CA Children Living in Urban Areas

Accessibility

For many students living in cities, nature is simply too far away and the transportation and organization required to get there too difficult. Kids instead are stuck indoors or cemented within their urban neighborhoods. Our specialty is planning these adventures and getting these kids outdoors.

Sponsor a Trip

You can make all the difference for a whole group of students by sponsoring a day trip, a residential camp, or the transportation to get kids there! Sponsor a trip for a school that’s close to your heart, or let us choose a school we know is in need of your financial and caring support.

Partner with Us

We are always looking for new organizations to partner with in bringing outdoor education to more students. Whether you want to hire our expert naturalists to lead your group in an outdoor adventure, or you have a program you’d like to share with our students, we’re ready to work with you!

 

Donate Goods or Services

Your donation of science and natural history equipment or educational expertise makes a valuable difference! Do you have or can your company collect gently used or new guide books, binoculars, hand lenses, clinometers, and more for field studies? Students will love it! Do you have valuable research about, say, forest ecology that you can share with our naturalists to pass on to kids? We'd love to meet you!

Donate a Portion of Sales

If it's for a month, a week, or even a day, the donation of a portion of your company's sales will go directly to the WOLF School Scholarship Fund, gifting an outdoor experience to underserved students and schools with limited access to nature. It's a fantastic way to show customers your community support and commitment to California's youth, and you might just raise enough to fund a whole trip!
