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>>

Will's Office
201 Mission, Suite 2750, San Francisco
Contact:Will Spargur (will [AT] norcalpca [DOT] org)


Each school year NorCal receives dozens of requests from teachers and community leaders asking for returned Peace Corps Volunteers to do presentations to their groups. This workshop will cover how to actively engage your listeners, tailor a presentation to different audiences, and how to prepare for common questions.

On Tuesday, September 30th, there will be a practice presentation session. The practice session is a collaborative environment where participants have the chance to give a short, 10 minute, presentation then the group will provided feedback on what they liked about the presentation and suggestions how to improve it. It’s also fun to listen to all the different stories from around the world.

Participants will be added to our first contact list so as requests come in we have a pool of trained presenters ready to speak to a variety of groups.

Workshop Agenda:
--Veteran presenters will share their experiences
--Examples of various presentations styles
--Tailoring presentations to the interests of your audience.
--Practice basic presentations skills
--Use artifacts from your service like fabrics, art objects, currency, tools, and photos.

Pizza and drinks will be provided to attendees. Please RSVP so we can prepare accordingly. RSVP to will[AT]norcalpca.org
