Storytelling Great ideas can transform the world. For centuries, the best way to communicate world-changing ideas has been through stories.

Imagine…

You’re a 15-year-old youth in the city of San Francisco…but you don’t have the support you need at home…

Page 4: Boys & Girls Club Transformation Grant

Your parents work not one, but two jobs to provide for the family. They rely on you at home to help feed and care for your younger brother and sister.

Page 5: Boys & Girls Club Transformation Grant

Imagine, you will be the first member of your family to go to college. So, you’ve taken the most advanced classes you can to do well, but the kids in those classes are different from you.

Page 6: Boys & Girls Club Transformation Grant

What will you do to build confidence and succeed in passing those courses and getting into a great college and eventually landing a great job?

What if Storytelling could support your success?Storytelling is a skill that helps foster young people’s character, personal growth and leadership qualities. It also helps them deliver more effective job and academic interviews.

After the overview of what great stories look like, we divided into groups to create our own stories.

We developed characters and their story.

We learned a lot about one another and had some fun.

In the village of OTeng, in China, lived a little girl, named Yow Cheng, who like every women of stature had her feet bound at an early age as a symbol of daintiness.

At the age of 5, however, she rebelled and refused to have her feet bound. She became an outcast in the family and the village. However, one day there was fire in the attic and the only person who could climb the ladder to save the ancestral home was Yow Cheng.

Since that day, she got the respect from her family, her peers and was empowered to accomplish amazing things, her own way and live the life she’s chosen for herself.

Our winning
