Participants will have an opportunity to present a story at a public performance at the end of the program series. Youth who complete the series will receive a certificate and a free book.
PeachSeed Youth Storytelling program is designed to develop skills in imagination and listening, foster a love of reading for pleasure, and build self esteem by eventually performing before an audience.
