To share ideas about how we can all help support Story Works and it’s mission.

Story Works Mission: (A quick review, just in case!)

Story Works supports youth voices through storytelling and writing workshops that develop skills, build resilience, and increase access to opportunity. We believe in the importance of listening, the protective value of connection, and the power of stories to foster wellness for individuals and communities.


Meeting Agenda:

  • Introductions
  • Updates from board members, awesome volunteers, SAYiT, and Teaching Fellows.
  • Small group discussions/brainstorming in breakout rooms
  • Closing questions
  • Goodbyes
    • Bonus: This meeting will feature graphic note-taking thanks to Stacy Weitzner. Thank you, Stacy!
