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>>

Our traveling Story Jam Series is hitting the South Bay for November and December.

Storytelling is what has allowed society to progress and grow. The Story Jam is a concentrated effort to take advantage of this tool to share our experiences. We as Peace Corps volunteers have lived in communities that have thrived on storytelling and now we honor that with Story Jam.

Come to the workshop ready to share an experience. It doesn't have to be super polished, just bring it, an open mind, and some enthusiasm and we will have a good time.
