Nurturing student leaders one school at a time — bring us to yours

Broaden perspectives and build community. Narrative 4 is changing the world, one classroom at a time. Bring us to yours.

Launch N4 in your school — start here

You’ll be assigned a dedicated Narrative 4 Advisor to guide you through our simple, five-step process. Here’s how it works:

  1. Contact your regional representative
  2. Collaboratively build your N4 partnership plan
  3. Participate in a story exchange
  4. Complete story exchange facilitator training
  5. Lead story exchanges in your classroom

The facilitators were able to make it a safe enough space to share whatever stories we had. The best part of the entire experience for me was hearing my partner narrate my story beautifully.

Narrating someone else’s story was eye-opening as well. It  felt like I actually got to walk in his shoes in that moment, which really is the whole idea behind the story exchange. I was also the only Nigerian at the exchange so I got to hear so many diverse stories. It was fun, insightful and emotional all at once.

Nothing else has the power to pierce through your heart and make you see through my world out of your space and get you to dwell in another’s space like the story exchange. 

The story exchange is impactful because I have seen the power it has to bring people together & build communities. It is one practice that breaks cultural differences like never before.

Narrative 4 leads us back to the art of listening and storytelling. It is the essence of any and every human connection. N4 needs to be an integral part of every school’s curriculum from kindergarten to 12th grade.
It is a life changer.
