Story Stitchers promotes a better educated, more peaceful, and more caring region through storytelling.

Story Stitchers is expanding its existing programs in storytelling, the arts and technology, which provide safe spaces for 16-24 year old at-risk youth to gather while they gain vocational skills.

Story Stitchers has 4 part time staff and a volunteer executive director and would like to expand its staff to provide additional services to youth in St. Louis. We are working on a business plan towards a larger youth arts and technology center. We are raising funds to support this big idea and we would love your help!

Your much-needed donation will support young people in our community through youth internships and salaries for mentoring artists. Your gifts will help us grow and expand programming for at-risk youth.
