StoryStrong taps into the power of personal stories featuring students and staff in order to build diversity awareness and connections. Diversity of ideas, backgrounds, experiences, purpose, and drive are common themes amplified among the school community. The ultimate goal is to unify people to enact positive change and shift cultures by building an environment of sharing, empathy, and cultural awareness in our communities and classrooms. Meanwhile, students are building communication and self-advocacy skills that will serve them well through life.
