Become a Live United Storyteller

LIVE UNITED Storytellers are individuals who have experienced or witnessed first-hand the positive impact of United Way and are passionate about sharing their stories. Our LIVE UNITED Storytellers are trained to be comfortable in boardroom presentations or on a manufacturing floor.

We invite you to be a part of the Live United Storytellers. By featuring speakers from United Way agencies, and members of our community impacted by poverty at campaign meetings, we’re able to bring the community’s needs to life. This is your agency’s opportunity to inform and motivate audiences to GIVE. ADVOCATE. VOLUNTEER.

By sharing compelling stories and images and the collaboration among agencies, audiences understand how their investment is transforming lives in our community.

The Storytellers Workshop will provide the basics of storytelling: what it is, what makes a good story, and why stories matter specifically in regards to fundraising.
