Arlington Enrichment Center is sponsoring a Free Workshop to all professionals within the nonprofit industry who are looking to incorporate storytelling as a great organizational practice!
Nonprofit Storytelling Workshop
Wednesday, April 11th
Workshop Facilitator: Laura Packer
In today's economic climate nonprofit organization must work even harder to be noticed by funders, potential stakeholders and even potential clients. Your staff may be feeling the strain of doing more with less.
Having a well-crafted and authentic story will help you persuade granting organizations that you are the right nonprofit in your field for them to fund, help your stakeholders and potential stakeholders communicate your mission more effectively and make your outreach to potential clients that much more powerful. What's more, when your staff knows your story and believes in it, they will be more passionate about their work in the face of adversity.
This highly participatory workshop will help you identify your organization's key story elements, craft those elements into several narratives appropriate for different audiences and conquer the challenges of telling your story.
