Our traveling Story Jam Series is hitting the South Bay for April and May.
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.
