About the Story Exchange

The Story Exchange is an evidence-based methodology, which teaches young people social and emotional skills and improves well-being. The Story Exchange increases peer support and instills a sense of resilience and belonging by reducing feelings of isolation.

Getting young people to share stories breaks down barriers, builds trust and reinforces the idea that they are not alone. The Story Exchange Programme can be delivered over 5 weeks. Through circle-work students will develop oral literacy skills, creativity skills, deep listening skills, public speaking/ storytelling skills and social and emotional learning skills.
