    Event Details

    Have you thought about using your skills to make an impact here in Dallas or elsewhere in the country and/or the world!?

    Do you like to travel, meet new people and experience new cultures, or learn something new about your own community? If so, come join us at the Beyond Your Backyard Story Night as members of the Peace Corps and AmeriCorps talk about their experiences living in new communities and/or serving in their own communities in new and unique ways. Storytellers from Peace Corps, CitySquare and City Year will share a slew of stories from activities that did not go as planned, to making unlikely friends, to experiencing the excitement that comes with dedicating time in your life to working with others.

    The event will take place on the back patio of the Wild Detectives on Sunday, August 7th from 7-9:30pm. We ask people to arrive around 7pm to find the perfect seat and enjoy a cup of coffee. We will start stories promptly at 7:30pm. Every story teller will have 5-7minutes to thrill the audience with their tale and representatives from Peace Corps, CitySquare and City Year will be on hand to answer any questions about each organization.

    The event is free and open to the public and light snacks will be provided, so bring a friend/family member and come join us on Sunday, August 7th from 7-9:30pm at Wild Detectives for an evening of storytelling, story sharing and socializing.
