These guidelines are designed to support high school students as they explore and share true, first-person stories that matter to them.

Adapted from ethical principles originally developed by Story Center (formerly the Center for Digital Storytelling) and developed with involvement from high school students who have gone through Story Works Alaska's free, in-school and out-of-school workshops, these guidelines invite educators to make space for choice, support wellness, and allow students to explore what matters to them.

Note: If you are interested in additional high school storytelling resources and are unable to find them here, please email info@storyworksak.org and let us know what you are looking for.
