Lets get together for a Folder Making Party, this time at San Jose's San Pedro Square Market.
What is Streetside Stories?
Through the power of storytelling, Streetside Stories cultivates young people's voices to develop literacy and arts skills, fosters educational equity, values diversity, and builds community.
Streetside has helped over 16,000 students engage with learning by sharing their life stories. We offer high-quality literacy arts education programs to students in kindergarten through the 8th grade in schools, after school programs, and community-based organizations throughout San Francisco and the East Bay. While Streetside services are available to a wide array of schools and community organizations, we focus our resources on reaching underserved young people who attend struggling schools
How can we help?
In all of their storytelling or media arts programs, Streetside provides students folders that they use in day-to-day exercises, or writing/illustrating their stories. In folder making parties, you draw on the inner-artist of our volunteers to make creative paper and compile the folders. Here are some cool designs!
