Beyond Borders
Mar 3 Storytelling Workshop


We all have stories to tell. That’s the Third Goal of Peace Corps, to share with people back home the experiences from our service overseas.  Beyond Borders Storytelling is hosting a storytelling workshop to help people turn those experiences into engaging stories.  The workshop is open to anyone who has a story with an international twist,  not just Returned Peace Corps Volunteers.

This workshop is perfect for those wanting to go that next step and perform before a live audience at the Story Jam in April.
Workshop is FREE to all. Pizza will be provided.  Details and RSVP Info Here>>

On June 20th and for a few days before, United Way is organizing a large school beautification project for its Day of Action on Friday June 20th from 8:30-12:00pm.

Early academic achievement is a key to success in life. Students perform better in a good environment for learning. Help restore the shine at Linda Vista Elementary School in East San Jose. From the playground, to the cafeteria, to the classrooms there are opportunities for you to paint, clean and redecorate to enhance the environment and create a warm and welcoming school.

Contact Evan Frazer (Peru '09-'12), who works at the United Way and will be at the event, if you have any questions.
