Engaging Teens as Changemakers: A KidsTales.org Case Study—An Educator Innovator Webinar

February 7, 2017

How can you engage teens to be Changemakers? KidsTales.org, a nonprofit founded by a kid for kids, will present their changemaking story and explore how to create, engage, and sustain teen changemakers. Kidstales.org brings creative writing workshops, taught by teen instructors, to 8 to 12 year old kids that do not have access to writing experiences outside of school. During a Kids Tales workshop, kids spend a week creating their very own short story. At the end of the week, the stories are assembled in a collection and self-published as a real, physical anthology. This past summer Kids Tales taught workshops in five countries, serving 400 kids and engaging 100 teen writing instructors. More ›
