Impact: What students are saying…

I really liked being able to see classmates in a deeper way than I’m used to. It makes me feel more connected to them.

In high school we all wear masks. In the telling of a story, that mask is removed.

This project was very valuable because in school teens rarely get a chance [to] show their true self… I loved how we all had stories to say and experiences that others would never know just looking at us.

I found it valuable that we might learn something about ourselves we never knew before. Because you understand yourself as a person better, it may open up a new door. And you’re the one opening the door.

It made me think about what made me ME.

Impact: How your gift will make a difference…

Story Works volunteers have now worked with over 1,800 high school students in Anchorage and Unalakleet, Alaska. These students have shared stories and strengthened connections while developing their writing and speaking skills.

As more and more teachers ask us to work with them and their students, our waitlist is growing longer. We want to expand our program so we can support more teachers, more students, and more stories. Your support will make that possible.
