The School of the Way operates from the donations of individuals & organizations around Baltimore and around the world.


Teachers and Life Coaches at the school are unpaid volunteers, so 100% of your donation goes towards uniforms, equipment and scholarship for our students.  A uniform costs $30 and there have been times when the school has given gift cards from area grocery stores to the families of students who were uncertain about where their next meal was coming from - so no donation  is too small or too large.  


Donations can be accepted online (above) via PayPal and are not currently tax deductible, but the school is in the process of obtaining 501C3 status.  


Patrons wishing to make a major donation to the school should contact the school and time their donation with the receipt of our 501C3 status in order to gain the tax benefits of that status.

Volunteer Your Talents


It takes a whole village to raise a child


The School of the Way is 100% Volunteer-operated by our Teachers, the Student Mentors and the parents who help out with Community Service projects. 


Since its inception in Baltimore, Maryland in 2010, the community has come together in the name of children having the opportunity to study the martial arts and benefit from mentorship in exchange for service to their community. Now our Vision is expanding and we’re looking to expand our network of volunteers and supporters.


The School of the Way is currently looking for volunteers with the following expertise:



Grant Writing

Grant Research

Legal Services

Accounting Services

Marketing and Marketing Communications

Social Media

Public Relations

Nonprofit Management


If you don’t have the time to give but would like to make a financial contribution, you can donate here (above). 


We’re trying to raise a generation of young leaders – who raise the next one….
