This year we are thrilled to announce we are partnering with Young Storytellers! The organization’s mission is simple: to inspire young people to discover the power of their voice.

Using one-on-one mentorship, low-income students learn how to write original stories and see them brought to life on stage and film.  Thanks to thousands of volunteer mentors, actors, and professional teaching artisits, we serve more than 60 public schools in Los Angeles and New York City, reaching 1,200 students in elementary, middle and high school each year.
As a result, young people learn that their voice matters.

ABOUT YOUNG STORYTELLERS:

 

In 1997, a group of young film students learned that Los Angeles public schools were cutting creative arts programs from their budgets. Knowing the value that arts education held in their own lives, they created a volunteer-based creative arts program they could take directly into public schools at no cost to the school. Today, Young Storytellers offers a variety of programs designed to engage the creativity of students at several points in their education experience.

 

Our core values — community, creativity, empowerment, access, and play — allow us to show up and make a difference, time-after-time. Throughout the years, we’ve made 446 short films, served 9,893 students, seen 9,165 scripts and held 921 programs. 95% of teachers involved have noticed an improvement in their students’ interest in creating stories, and 94% of parents saw increased confidence in their children sharing creative ideas one-on-one. Most importantly, perhaps, 91% of Young Storytellers felt more confident in their writing abilities.
