WALKING TOURS BY LOCALS
Tour Medellín and Colombia with local Storytellers.
Impact through storytelling.
Take a guided tour of Medellín with youth who grew up here. Get an immersive experience and support the local community at the same time.
The Storytellers story
Local students in our San Javier and Santo Domingo classes improved their English by being informal tour guides - "storytellers" (Stairway Storytellers)
Through English classes and soft skill training, the Storytellers create unique tours based on their own story and personal anecdotes.
Creating a supportive community
The Storytellers are actively involved in social projects, supporting ongoing classes and participating in social initiatives
OUR WALKING TOURS
Comuna 13 tour
See the graffiti and live the transformation of Comuna 13 with the Storytellers from San Javier, Medellín. Once the most dangerous neighborhood in the world, Comuna 13 is now a colourful area full of life and beautiful street art.
Santo Domingo tour
Santo Domingo has its own story. Learn about the growth of the community, its good and bad memories, the scars left by corruption and personal stories. All situated around the metrocable going to Parque Arvi.
Why the Storytellers?
The Storytellers formed as a way of using direct experience to help students learn. The project has since transformed to be an employment platform and the primed.community’s largest impact project to date.
We believe this initiative creates positive and sustainable changes in communities through connecting people through language and providing work opportunities through soft skill development.
This project would not be possible without support from our amazing community and volunteers that helped out.
