Young Storytellers equips young people to be the driving force of their own narratives. We’re passionate about bringing people together and creating stories to raise the voices of those who don’t often get heard.

We believe that when a young person understands the power of their own story—made of their unique background, culture, race, gender, sexuality, immigration status, geographic location, and economic status—it creates a more empathetic and equitable future for everyone.

We raise voices, one story at a time.



We celebrate originality and individuality. Our community is made better when we can speak fully from our unique perspectives and identities.


People are at the center of everything we do. Genuine connection requires empathy, sensitivity, and honesty.


Being vulnerable and inventive requires a supportive environment. We foster spaces where we can explore ourselves, the communities in which we live, and how we can impact the world.


Play with purpose allows us to investigate the world with wonder. This is how we open the road to creativity.


Unique identities, backgrounds, and perspectives make the world a better place. We fight against the racism, prejudice, and bias that exist in our systems and cultures so that all people are treated with respect and dignity.
