Motivating Youth With the Written Word – Lisa Nelson-Haynes

Do you love stories? Everyone does!

Today we talk to Lisa Nelson-Haynes, the executive director of Philadelphia Young Playwrights. In her role, she brings a deep knowledge of the Philadelphia arts-education community, coupled with hands-on experience with non-profit management and educational programming. 

She tells us how she helps young people to learn the skills of telling their stories in their own voices. As a storyteller herself, Lisa understands first-hand power of telling your own stories can have for personal development. Listen in and learn how you can cultivate agency and self-advocacy skills through story telling.
