Storytelling for Families

CHSC currently sponsors two different trainings for families to help them to develop their family's story.

Storytelling for Family Leaders is a virtual training developed in consultation with the Iowa Department of Education based on the Parents as Presenters program. The training includes online modules and Zoom sessions for peer coaching to help families develop a 10 minute story to be used as part of their advocacy efforts.
