Spellbinders® is dedicated to restoring the art of oral storytelling to connect elders to youth, weaving together the wisdom of diverse cultures throughout time.

Since ancient times storytellers have told stories to pass on wisdom, engage the imagination and foster community. Our storytelling program recreates this age-old tradition, bringing together young and old to create connections, advance literacy and enrich the lives of children and volunteers alike. Please, join us in our vision of fostering humanity, community and literacy.
