Young Storytellers “Day of Story”

NBCUniversal volunteers helped bring to life the ideas of fourth grade students at Rio Vista Elementary as part of Young Storytellers “Day of Story.”

During this half-day social impact workshop, NBCUniversal mentors encouraged this next generation of storytellers to unlock their imagination through creative writing exercises and structured gameplay. By the end of the workshop, each student developed an original story idea and created a movie poster complete with a title, tagline and logline, which they shared with the group of 42 participants.

NBCUniversal has an ongoing partnership with Young Storytellers that includes two “Day of Story” events, as well as two Script-to-Stage programs, a 10-week program where NBCUniversal mentors help students develop their own five-page script that is performed by working actors.


Young Storytellers engages creativity through the art of storytelling. Thanks to thousands of volunteer mentors, actors, and professional teaching artists, we serve more than 60 public schools in Los Angeles and New York City, serving 1,200 students in elementary, middle, and high school each year. Their mission is to inspire young people to discover the power of their own voice. For more information, click here.
