This week, we learn about Children at the Well, a Capital Region organization that seeks to build community and grow leaders by increasing the capacity for understanding through the ancient art of storytelling.

On January 12, Children at The Well will hold an evening of stories and songs called “Winter Lights” to benefit the Children at the Well and the Interfaith Story Circle programs.

We are joined by co-founder and Director of Children at the Well Paula Weiss, and Assistant Children at the Well Storycoaches Varun Mondaiyka and Ayah Osman.

Today we learn about the Children at the Well storytelling program – which helps young people tap into the richness of stories from their traditions to strengthen their development of voice.

Children at the Well is a program of WithOurVoice, Inc., which also oversees the Interfaith Story Circle of the Tri-City Area, begun by Gert Johnson in 1993.

We are joined by Paula B. Weiss, co-founder and Director; and Khalafalla Osman – a former participant now applying to law school.
