Non-Profit in the Spotlight: Spellbinders, Part 2

SBSLogo_FullColor-2_0.png

Catherine Scales-Johnson is the Executive Director of Spellbinders, an organization that is best known for its in-school storytelling program. Told by volunteers, the stories span from folk tales and personal stories to historical fiction. All volunteers must go through a 14-hour training and continue to have regular meetings with other volunteers.

Volunteer teller, Adelaide Waters, shares her personal experience with Spellbinders and the inspiration for her own stories. 

The Spellbinders Roaring Fork Chapter will have a volunteer training in August 2016 at the Third Street Center in Carbondale. Contact Annie at asinton@comcast.net for more information and to sign-up. More information about Spellbinders can be found at www.spellbinders.org.  

Cornelia was born and raised in Aspen and is happy to be home after attending the University of Denver, where she earned degrees in Geography and Studio Art. Since graduating in 2011, she has illustrated several local children’s books, made maps around the world, and continues to draw and paint. In the summer of 2011, Cornelia was a Development intern at The Aspen Institute, and returned to work for The Aspen Ideas Festival in the summer of 2012.
