Narrative 4 has transformed the lives of our students and it has transformed the culture of our school. There are fewer suspensions and students graduate at high rates and they learn not only to listen and to value each other, they also learn the power of their voice and the power of their story.

University Heights High School, The Bronx, NY

The fabric of our communities gets a little more tightly woven with each story exchanged and every bond created. I think we’re all changed by the work
of Narrative 4.

Amanda Waters, Ph.D., N4 Master Practitioner
and Multicultural Specialist, Staff Psychologist, University of Connecticut

Narrative 4 leads us back to the art of listening and storytelling. It is the essence of any and every human connection. N4 needs to be an integral part of every school’s curriculum from kindergarten to 12th grade.
It is a life changer.
