Storytelling is a fundamental part of being human.  Stories are a universal language for passing down knowledge and meaning. They help us to understand our place in the world, and they help us to shape our view of the world. Stories teach us how to act with empathy, compassion, and understanding as we learn to understand other people’s perspectives and experiences.

Greensboro Bound uses the power of stories to bind our community together.
