Cherry Creek Spellbinders Storytellers share the rich oral tradition of tales that teach and enchant. Rather than read stories, Spellbinders Storytellers tell live stories to kids of all ages. Working with teachers and activities directors, volunteer storytellers enhance literacy, stimulate imagination and broaden multicultural understanding.
A Spellbinders Storyteller learns many types of stories (fables, folktales, and fairytales), has access to extensive collections of stories and online resources, voluntarily tells stories either on a regular self-chosen schedule or stand-alone opportunities to students of Cherry Creek schools, shares information and develops relationships with teachers, students, and other storytellers, and has opportunities to tell at community events and at our libraries, museums, camps and festivals.
Storytellers receives plentiful training and support with 12 hours of instruction and practice prior to telling, consultation with a Certified Spellbinders Trainer, the opportunity to shadow experienced storytellers, the chance to attend monthly chapter meetings with mini-workshops, and interaction with fellow volunteers for story ideas and suggestions.
