Joel Jenkins is a storyteller. He enjoys using his imagination to help people laugh, inspire learning, and look beyond their everyday lives. As a producer and writer, Joel created What’s Your Story, Kid?, an in-school residency that nurtures children’s storytelling skills through filmmaking. This successful program has entertained and educated many students. Parents have noted the improvement they’ve seen in their children’s self-esteem as the students learn to focus their creativity into producing a video presentation.
