It’s a small but important section of our website dedicated to the dedicated. Thanks for exploring.
Storycatchers is the youth.
They are determined, passionate and eager to find a path to success. After hearing their powerful stories and seeing them achieve things they never thought possible, this is irrefutable.
Unfortunately, federal law prevents us from identifying minors in public. They may be anonymous, but they are real people. They are surviving as best they can like anyone else. They have dreams like anyone else. It’s the media, the cynics, the uninformed that have taken their identity away. They tell their stories to take it back.
Storycatchers is our staff.
It takes a specialized, dedicated team to help highly-traumatized youth to step onstage and tell their stories. Our staff are professional artists and administrators who take part in monthly trainings to keep up with trauma research, cultural issues, advances in art-expression therapy and creative initiatives with key partners.
In short, these are people are unique. They are smart, passionate and driven to help young people succeed.
