Center for Story-based Strategy offers tools, trainings and partnership relationships to movement-building organizations across the country



 Story-based strategy (SBS) tools allow change makers working alone or facilitating large groups to develop effective strategies to create a world where the goals and futures we imagine are possible or inevitable. The tools are facilitated, participatory activities that help amplify frontline community expertise on critical issues.  

Learn the basics of SBS


Our online and public training programs offer opportunities for change-makers working in every issue sector to learn and practice story-based strategy. Trainings range from introductory-concept webinars to full-day custom trainings for conferences and convenings.
