The Incarnate Word Foundation would like to identify community members living and/or working with North St. Louis organizations. The organizations can be 501c(3) nonprofit charities, church and faith based ministries, and/or individuals doing the good work for the betterment of their communities. The ideal participants will be from organizations that believe that they can use the digital storytelling skills learned in our workshop to improve the effectiveness and reach of their organization. Participants can be any individual involved in the organization that would be interested and excited about learning these skills and will continue to put the skills to use. Class participants can be staff, volunteers, board members, clients or youth (16 years or older only) involved in the community and/or your organization. Due to limited funds, we are asking that each organization sends only 2 individuals to class. Priority is given to community members who have never taken a Nine Academy class during the past 12 months and all participants must apply online for a seat in this next round of classes.

The class starts at 9am and ends at 3pm with a lunch break 12pm to 1pm. There are scheduled OPTIONAL two-hours of open lab time after the class starting 3pm and ending at 5pm. We strongly recommend all participants to dedicate at least 10 hours of lab time to their project in and outside the scheduled class times. All classes take place at the Nine Network of Public Media, 3655 Olive Street, downtown St. Louis next to St. Louis Public Radio.
