How storytelling helps youth at Hillsides Education Center in Pasadena

Hillsides Education Center collaborates with Story Tribe, an organization that empowers youth to express themselves, share their stories, and reflect on topics that impact their lives. Story Tribe does this by offering a dynamic creative writing and performance program that connects people to their authentic selves, to one another, and their community through personal narrative. Produced in August 2014 by Steven Cole, students have performed twice a year, once in December and at graduation in May. To speak with our Hillsides division director of campus-based services, call Stacey Roth at 323-254-2274. Visit and to learn how we can collaborate to help youth thrive.

Many thanks to our Hillsides staff: Steven Cole for directing and editing the video, Michael Macias for managing the audio, Kaitlyn Trotter for photographing, and Adrian Solorio for helping to coordinate the production.
