Storytellers

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

The beginning

Students in our San Javier and Santo Domingo English classes transformed into tour guide "storytellers."

Applied language learning

We focused on applying language in the real world, designing, rehearsing and improving tours of our local communities using its own story and our personal anecdotes.

Meaningful work

We teach English and train storytellers so they can earn an income using their new language and skills.

*new* 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 Proyecto Prime’s largest impact project to date.
