The Moth Education Program

The Moth Education Program works with young people and educators to build community through the art and craft of personal storytelling. Through in-class curriculum resources, after-school programs, performance opportunities, and professional development for teachers, The Moth’s Education Program brings a vital sense of connection, a distinctive creative art form, and valuable communication skills to school communities and school-aged youth across the nation.

Through our current project activities, we serve a diverse group of students and educators in over 45 schools in New York City, and provide professional development and resources to educators across the country.
