The Porch Storytelling presents ‘Somewhere in Between’ @ Granary Row
Jul 11 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm
The Porch Storytelling presents 'Somewhere in Between' @ Granary Row

The Porch uses one of the oldest and most enduring forms of communication: live storytelling.

We believe this is an art form that not only entertains but also helps people grow in empathy, bringing them together starting with their own neighbors.  Stories on the Porch are local—together they paint a rich and complex picture of the individuals that make up a particular community, which in our case is Utah Valley.  The Porch is a venue for expressing diverse personalities and perspectives, unique experiences, and the personal and cultural struggles we go through.

The stories on The Porch are sometimes humorous, sometimes sad or spiritual, but they always are true stories, and always heartfelt.

Grant Writing II @ MURRAY SITE

What is a logic model? This tool captures a program in a graphic format, clarifying activities and outcomes and communicating the anticipated results to the funder. Many federal, state, and foundation grants request applicants to submit a logic model as a part of a grant application. Building on principles from Grant Writing I, you will develop a complete logic model for your program that will support both your grant writing and grant implementation efforts.
