The POWER OF Storytelling

We believe each and every person, community, and organization has a story with the power to inspire action. We design and facilitate trainings for youth, educators, and organizations to learn the art of storytelling and harness the power of narrative to promote empathy, inclusion, and social change across their communities. 


TRAININGS 

Your Story Can Make A Difference

Storytellers for Change offers a variety of trainings, workshops, and facilitation services for three key audiences: youth, educators, and organizations. All our trainings are grounded on an empathy-first approach and employ storytelling, experiential learning, and design thinking to engage, empower, and equip people and organizations with the tools they need to harness the power of narrative. 

For Youth 

These trainings are geared towards empowering young people to believe in the power of their story to shape their own journeys as well as surrounding communities. We employ storytelling and experiential learning to invite youth to reflect, write, and share their stories for positive change.

      What People Are Saying

       

      Since 2010, we've had the opportunity to facilitate over 500 storytelling trainings for a variety of audiences and organizations across different sectors. 

      These are a few of the organizations we have had the pleasure to work with: 

       
      Powerful, engaging, and thought provoking. I’m energized, inspired, and ready to share my story for change. Best workshop I’ve ever attended.
      — Francisco Enriquez, Bellevue College Student & Centro Latino Coordinator
      I highly recommend Storytellers for Change to anyone who needs to tell a story. Their methods come straight from the heart, but with a laser like precision to help each person pinpoint the particular levers and emotions they need to access to tell their own story.
      — Sarah Westlake, Managing Editor ArtPlace America
      Empowering and mind-changing! Thank you for such an incredible and inspiring training. Storytelling will always play a key role in my teaching.
      — Alyssa Virtue, Teacher @ James Denman Middle School
      I highly recommend Luis Ortega and his organization Storytellers for Change. I would hire Luis in a heartbeat and recommend Luis as a facilitator or speaker to anyone looking for an engaging storyteller, adaptive facilitator, and model change maker.
      — Roseann London, Director of the Gear Up Educator Development Initiative
