They believe that young people have important stories that deserve to be heard, and they hold a deep respect for students’ voices. The storytelling workshops engage young people in creative, inquiry-driven learning that focuses on developing their capacity as storytellers through literary arts, media arts, visual arts, and performance.

The teaching staff is made up of local artists, writers, and poets who identify as both community artists and creative educators. They collaborate within a professional learning community to support each other and students in taking positive risks, reflecting on their learning, and thinking critically.
