What is Story Starters?
We all want our kids to grow up with
big hearts, open minds, & helping hands.
Yet everyday we see examples of people being hurt because they are seen as different in some way. Many of us are asking...
What do we tell our kids?
How do we support them on their journey to being forces of awesome
in the community and in the world?
Story Starters helps families answer
some of these tough questions.
We know that racial bias starts early and that avoiding conversations about race is harmful to all kids. So we’ve developed an at-home program for children ages 3 - 8 and their families to encourage conversations that build empathy, support connection, and preempt racial bias.
Learn more about our curriculum in the video below.
Who: Families looking to talk to their kids about race and racism
Age: Families with children ages 3 - 8 years old
Program Dates: July 6th - August 31st 2020

By joining us you are helping to support a growing movement of families who are building anti-racist homes. To sustain the work and make it possible for Story Starters to have an impact in your community and beyond, we ask for a registration fee of $125 to supplement program costs (actual cost of the program for one family is $180). If you are unable to contribute, we have full and partial scholarships available for any family who needs one.
