“Right now not only as a nation, but as humans, we are divided. Whether it be the color of our skin or the things we believe in, it seems everyone has a problem with something.

But I believe, as people, we’re so much more than that. If we would just sit down with someone we have differences with and learn more about each other through the process of storytelling, the world would be a better place, one story at a time.”

–Ethan, N4 Student Ambassador, KY, US

The Empathy Project at Narrative 4 Ireland

Our Field Exchange Program is an immersive experience designed for students from different backgrounds, cultures, and communities to explore one another’s homes and histories.

Through a year-long curriculum and two week-long trips in each community, students from our two visionary partner schools—University Heights High School (UHHS) in the Bronx, NY and Floyd Central High School (FCHS) in Langley, KY—cross state lines and cultural divides in an effort to build community, break down barriers, and shatter stereotypes.

Check out what current N4 students are doing below and then contact us to get involved!
