We are thrilled to partner with Story District to offer free storytelling classes for veterans, service members, military families, and caregivers. This six-week, Storytelling 101 course, will help students translate experiences and stories into meaningful performances. Called the "gold standard in storytelling" by the Washington Post, our master teachers walk students through the steps of identifying material, developing a narrative structure, and connecting with an audience. All courses culminate with a graduation performance for friends, family, and members of the local community. If you are interested in hearing the stories of our Storytelling 101 graduates, please check out our Storytelling YouTube playlist below.
PLEASE NOTE: Throughout 2018, ASAP is conducting a Program Impact Evaluation (PIE) with Dr. Tom Ford of Western Carolina University and Dr. Janelle Junkin of unlock Ngenuity, LLC. The PIE includes a 30 minute survey before classes begin, a post-class survey two weeks after classes conclude, follow up surveys again at three months and six months, and at least one interview or focus group. Completion of each survey automatically enters you in to a drawing for a $50 Amazon gift card. Participation in the PIE is voluntary, and your willingness to participate will not affect your admission into the program. If you have any questions about the PIE, please feel free to contact ASAP staff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
