Welcome to Storytellers for Change!

Congratulations and welcome to the first ever yearlong Storytellers for Change participatory storytelling and community project.

We started this project because we believe in the power of building community while sharing stories to inspire action. Furthermore, we believe in the resilience and wisdom of each storyteller's journey, in this case first generation graduates, to promote inclusion and equity across the education world. 

We are excited you will be joining us in this journey. In order to get started, please take a moment to complete this form to confirm your availability to fully participate in the program and to set up our first in-person or  phone interview to go over the program details. 

For additional questions, you can reach Luis Ortega at 

We look forward to working with you!

In Solidarity,

The Storytellers for Change Team
