Why Storyteeling!

Storytelling is a powerful vehicle for learning: human brains are naturally oriented towards acquiring, processing, and retaining knowledge via stories.

At GNG, we use storytelling to expand students’ exposure to and understanding of their global peers and the contexts and communities in which they live.

“Tell me a fact and I’ll learn. Tell me a truth and I’ll believe, but tell me a story and it will live in my heart forever”

Our Programs:

CAMPFIRE is GNG's flagship program partnering middle and high school-ages youth across the world in virtual exchange through online dialogue and collaborative curricula.

Rooted in storytelling, our campfire programs aim to create a generation of youth who are empathetic, globally aware, and taking positive action in their local and global communities.

CAMPFIRE: Collaborating Classrooms

Interactive, Introspective, Globally-connected!
Collaborating classrooms connects classrooms from different parts of the world to explore identity, challenge stereotypes, and create personal stories to present at a culminating story share event

How it works:

- Students engage online with global peers through asynchronous exchange
- One device per 3-5 students
- 6 lessons implemented over the course of 12 weeks
- A minimum of 2 hours per week required
- Collaborating classrooms is best suited for global elective courses, advisory periods, or after school programs where flexibility exists

CAMPFIRE: student to world

Student to world is an online program where youth learn about global issues via activities, articles, videos, and stories created by students from around the world. The program culminates in creating an action plan.

How it works:
