In Tunisia, IREX and FHI 360 are engaging youth in storytelling as a means for building empathy, a key cross-sectoral soft skill proven to support violence prevention. New initiatives informed by NPR’s The MOTH Storytelling Hour are giving youth the tools to tell their stories and to showcase those stories to broader audiences.

This presentation will engage attendees in a “storytelling slam” similar to the slam events that will be facilitated in Tunisia and will discuss the benefits of youth engagement in storytelling and narrative.
