Young Storytellers Foundation Overview
The Young Storytellers Foundation develops literacy through the art of storytelling. Using group exercises and one-on-one mentoring, we provide underserved children in the public school system an opportunity to write stories and see them brought to life through performance. Our mission is to inspire children to discover the power of their own voice.
We believe every child has a story worth telling. Each child who participates in the Script to Stage program experiences a life-changing success. Each word and idea in the script is their sole creation. Each child casts his/her own story with professional actors. Each child walks down the red carpet with a VIP badge to a rousing standing ovation. Each child sees their story performed in front of families, teachers, and friends in their elementary school auditorium.
