See the world, make a difference
Have you always dreamed of travelling the world, telling stories, and making a difference? If you’re a storyteller willing and able to volunteer your time for an important cause, the PWB Program is for you. The PWB Program is designed to connect the right storytellers to the right assignments.
Storytelling is at the centre of everything we do and we recognize it is not always accessible to all communities.
That's why we focus on partnering with communities in need all over the world who are contributing to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (a list of 17 goals that globally aim to address everything from healthcare, to women's empowerment, to human rights, to sustainability and innovation) and UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. We value the knowledge that comes from lived experience and seek to amplify the voices and stories who wish to be heard.

PWB itself has become a platform to share these stories with the world through our Film Series, the PWB Magazine, exhibits, publications, and more. We are always looking for media and community partners to help amplify our community partners’ stories. We are thankful to the Huffington Post, Huffington Post Travel, CBC, Rangefinder, National Geographic, The Economist, SLR Lounge, the UN-HABITAT 2013 Handbook, Guttenberg Press, Alternavox, Photo Life, Hart House Camera Club and many others for sharing important stories. You can also watch our TEDx talk.
