WE BELIEVE KIDS HAVE THE BEST IDEAS
The Story Pirates Changemakers is a nationally respected education and media organization, dually based in New York and Los Angeles. We turn kids' original stories into wild sketch comedy musicals featuring professional actors to show those kids just how amazing their ideas are. We believe that there is a powerful link between literacy and confident self-expression, so we haven’t stopped expanding since the day we started providing programming at a single Harlem elementary school in 2004.
