Own Your Narrative: Transformative Student-Designed Stories

Mar 5, 2024

2:30pm – 3:30pm CT

We face increasingly complicated, uncharted challenges that demand our full contributions, individually and together. Our stories activate our whole selves, making us powerful and connected. While stories get told every day, only some voices are heard. These panelists have used student-designed narratives to unleash the curiosity, passion, and voices of young people in the juvenile justice system, first-generation college students, and high school kids. They will share students’ written, spoken, sung, and filmed artifacts, approaches that enabled these, and the impact on all involved.
