Rural Storytelling

​Teen Story Telling Project

Youth ages 12+ - are you looking for something fun and creative to do this summer? Join our Teen Story Telling Project, led by three Cornell University students who are interning with 4-H in Ulster, Dutchess and Columbia and Greene Counties. Seth, Madison and Wendy are looking forward to interacting with ten youth from each of our counties this summer. Everyone has a story to tell and I KNOW that teens in our community have a lot to share about their involvement in their family, their community, their school.

You will meet with the interns via ZOOM twice a week, beginning in late June. Hear from them below:

During these sessions you will learn about what makes a good story and then they will guide you as you craft your own. You can choose your platform for your story – written, like an essay or poetry; video; spoken; narrated slide show – there are so many options. The program will end with an opportunity for everyone to share their story through a community showcase. Along the way fun incentives like t-shirts, gift cards, stickers and more are in store!!

Let us know of your interest soon so you can receive the link to join in the June 15th information session. The info session is not required but we do need you signed up by the first session, on June 22. Connect with Linda Tripp at 518-605-0786 or for more information and to sign up.
