Sharing the Fire Conference (March 23-25, 2018)
Paula Weiss, co-founder and former director of Children at the Well, will be at the Sharing the Fire Conference sponsored by Northeast Storytelling in Plymouth, Massachusetts. Paula will be there to market and promote the new book Our Stories Connect.

WithOurVoice, Inc. proudly offers this educational tool, based on ten years of creating and running the Children at the Well program, to inspire the creation of other youth empowerment programs through storytelling. This 145 page book features a variety of voices of people who have been involved, and provides a full Children at the Well curriculum as well as practical advice. The book covers dreaming up a bridge-building youth storytelling program, enlisting community allies, administering and delivering the program, and sustaining it into the future.

We hope the impact of this guide lives on like that of a well-made quilt … passed down from generation to generation.

School’s Out, Make it Count (April 13-14, 2018)
Look for Paula Weiss and members of the Board of WithOurVoice, Inc. at this conference sponsored by Network for Youth Success in Saratoga Springs, NY. We are excited to attend this conference as we look to expand the avenues and options for Children at the Well.

2015 was our Tenth Year!! of bringing diverse young people (and their families) together through the art of storytelling in the Capital Region of New York State. On April 26th, we celebrated our anniversary at the C@W performance, which included Indian Classical Dance by students of Narthanalaya School of Arts.

It started out as a photo of the Board after our May 4, 2014 program and potluck supper, but people kept jumping into the photo, not wanting to be left out...and we all kept laughing!
