Share to Connect: Using storytelling for Youth work

Storytelling is increasingly being used as a tool to initiate communicative, social and intercultural processes among young people. That is because storytelling is about the storyteller as well as the listener and therefore brings connection. In order to achieve that connection worldwide, we regularly pass on our method to other youth workers.

Coincidental meeting, or not?

Storytelling helps us to think differently about problems, but also takes us out of our daily thinking pattern and opens up new visions. And those are precisely the qualities that are necessary to develop a more sustainable and resilient society. To help other youth workers worldwide achieve the same results among young people, we developed the Share to Connect method. We transfer the method to other youth workers through workshops, training and presentations.
