Even though it will be another year until we celebrate International Talk Like a Pirate Day again, I don’t think that we’ve had enough pirate talk for the week. Just kidding, no pirate talk today, but we are going to take a look at a non-profit called Story Pirates. They’re based in New York, NY and Los Angeles, CA, and they pair “experienced teachers with talented artists to collaborate with schools and community organizations in creating exciting, dynamic classes covering a broad range of academic topics.” That’s actually a kind of boring way to put it. One of the programs that they’re best known for is taking stories that kids write and acting them out. How could that not be absolutely awesome?
While Story Pirates focuses heavily on in-school programs, they also do birthday parties, after-school programs, toddler classes, national tours, programs for seniors, and a variety of different shows. Together they’re all aimed at helping “build strong communities that celebrate the value of young voices from diverse backgrounds.” I highly recommend that you take a look at Story Pirates’ Multimedia page to see what the programming actually looks like. You may also want to check out some of their Authors. If you’re digging what Story Pirates does, take a look at their job postings on Idealist. Right now they’re looking for a Teaching Artist. There’s also a Producing Fellowship Program, but it barely pays and it seems they only have openings for next school year (which is pretty far away).
