WE ARE A YOUTH ORGANIZATION. SEEKING TRIUMPHS OF RISING YOUTH BY WAY OF MENTORSHIP AND ACTS OF KINDNESS.

WHAT DO WE ACTUALLY DO?

GATHER AND DISTRIBUTE RESOURCES FOR COURAGEOUS YOUTH IN NEED.

Three friends from college created a student organization in 2007 called A.R.K. “Acts of Random Kindness”. This student organization raised funds for homeless students. Moved by the thought of helping others post graduation; Thus the creation of S.T.O.R.Y Board Network was born in 2008. The core foundation of S.T.O.R.Y Board Network involves seeking triumphs of rising youth that have overcome unforeseen obstacles in life at an early age.

StoryBoard Network is dedicated to Seeking Triumphs of Rising Youth by rendering simple acts of kindness. We are committed to providing resources that will encourage and uplift the spirits of courageous youth who have encountered unfortunate circumstances beyond their control. Our greatest intention involves creating a stream of compassion that will ignite a spark of bravery; allowing courageous youth to rewrite their stories one page at a time.

Our purpose involves providing resources that courageous youth lack due to unforeseen circumstances such wards of the state and youth that resides within low-income families. A simple act of kindness can help courageous youth live a more thought provoking lifestyle.
