STORYMAKERS PROJECTS

MIGRANT CHILDREN & FAMILIES

Families seeking a new life in the United States are currently being detained without legal representation.

 

These books and materials outline their legal rights and unification processes in their native languages.

INDIGENOUS STORIES

More than one billion people have never read a book, because books are not printed in their local language. 

 

This project acquires existing books and translates them in dual languages - and culturally and geographically to create relevance - for distribution to indigenous people. 

RESCUE WRITING

​A program designed for kids to write stories about their pets. This project is ideal for classrooms — each child writes a chapter, and then students read each others work.

 

The platform includes pre-made templates, fun illustrations and guidelines to assist anyone who wants to create an animal themed book.

INSIDE OUT

This program is designed to tell the stories of teen boys who are currently incarcerated, awaiting sentencing as adult offenders. 

The boys provide insight into the difficulties of gang life and the reality of living in prison as a deterrent to a life of crime from young boys.

OUTSIDE IN

​This writing program is designed to highlight the stories of local teen-agers who are on a productive path in life. 

By exploring their choices, family life and character, they share their personal stories to mentor others to make positive decisions.

POYNTER'S WRITE FIELD

​This the the Poynter Institute's writing program for teen boys, designed to give them strong writing and personal communication skills. 

 

The boys interact with mentors and share experiences once a month during the school year.
