When one can own their story they are empowered to create a brave new ending.
- Brene Brown


The Claim Your Story (CYS) curriculum is nine units designed for K-6 students. At the culmination of the classroom instruction each student will create a personalized storybook about their own Hero’s Journey. Each grade band has their own age specific materials to help them learn at their level. This super flexible curriculum can be tailored around the needs of each classroom. units can be taught at a pace that works for you over the course of a few weeks, a whole semester, an or entire year. It was designed to integrate with curriculum already being taught. It is built to be online or classroom based, it works well in a blended format and has proven to be a win-win for parents, teachers and students,

As students begin to claim their story they will learn how their story impacts the communities they are a part of. They will learn to reach out and listen to others, find ways to serve them, and choose courage to share their story to help others. We are committed to providing a learning experience that will not only benefit the students who participate, but the ripple effect will carry out into their classroom, school, home, community and world. Claim Your Story was written by teachers for teachers and helps students young and old take the lead in their story!

This curriculum is a fantastic add to the programming you likely provide for your clients. This will help them better understand their path, the choices they have made, and assist them in reframing their story for their path ahead.

I wish I could capture in words the power of this experience for our students. The smiles. The pride. This is a program that is worth replicating.

I LOVE THIS PROJECT! As an educator, I feel that this program has impacted student lives more than any other project I’ve had in my classroom. The strength and confidence given to the students and my deeper understanding of them and the experiences they’ve come from helped us to bond deeper and more quickly leading us to work even better together than we normally do.

My favorite thing about this process is that students gain strength from and see value in their own story, especially those students with difficult backgrounds who need to frame their lives from a new perspective.
