Mission, Vision, Values

The Young Storytellers Foundation develops literacy through the art of storytelling. Using group exercises and one-on-one mentoring, we provide underserved children in the public school system an opportunity to write stories and see them brought to life through performance. At the core of our programming are thousands of adult volunteers who donate their time to mentor individual students and perform their works on stage. Our mission is to inspire children to discover the power of their own voice.

At YSF, we believe…

1. That every child has a story worth telling.

2. That arts education is a right, not a privilege, and…

3. That all students deserve equal access to this education, regardless of race, neighborhood, economic status, or any other indicator, and…

4. That we can correct inequalities in public education by providing supplemental, in-school quality arts programming.
