Mar. 1: Guest Presenter on Storytelling & Asset-Based Community Development

On March 1, just before I leave for Massachusetts for my alumni networking event, I will be leading a workshop for young people in Miami’s Public Allies program on the topic of Storytelling and Asset-based Community Development.

How do you move from conversation to action around the issues you care about? I will be sharing advice about the craft of storytelling and calls to action, and will help participants learn how to apply these skills in order to:

  • tell the stories of community residents or recipients of services at placement;
  • mobilize others to action around an issue area.

The workshop will be taking place at Catalyst Miami, an organization where I used to work when I was Director of Imagine Miami (at that time it was called Human Services Coalition). The Public Allies program for Miami is based at Catalyst Miami.

I am honored to have the opportunity to offer a workshop for these young, emerging leaders, who inspire me greatly.
