Workshops Powered by Corps Members

Ideaction Corps is 40 Corps Members strong. Our collective of freelancers, agencies, and firms stands ready to serve you on your next social impact initiative, whether it's helping you design and launch a new program, stepping in to create and implement a marketing strategy to help your organization grow, coaching your leadership team through a time of transition, or supporting you in producing your next big fundraising event. The projects we partner with you on go far beyond this - we love activating those big, bold initiatives dripping with ambition, as well as the engagements that teach you a new skill to help you achieve your goals faster.

Today we’re launching something new -- Ideaction University -- to deliver Corps Member talents to you in accessible, high-impact formats.


STORIES MATTER: A Workshop Powered by StoryStudio Chicago

Good stories can compel us to action.

Communicating to your funders, clients, supporters and stakeholders is about more than just asking for money or help. It means finding and telling the right stories to engage your audience and keep them emotionally connected. Good stories well told are the secret to compelling an audience to action.

StoryStudio Chicago's hands-on workshop introduces the elements of written and spoken stories and how to apply these narratives across different communications channels and to different audiences.


  • Four-hour, interactive session
  • Up to 30 participants
  • Services provided onsite or at StoryStudio
  • One instructor
  • Participants will bring a project to work on during class
  • Course materials, original exercises, and additional resources online
  • Per person fee of $350, minimum of 10 participants


To sign up your group for a STORIES MATTER WORKSHOP, or to inquire for more information, contact Meredith Puleio DuBoff at


We're working away on other Ideaction University offerings, including workshops with the Design for Good community, and a skills-sharing session on lessons for nonprofits from political fundraising. Watch this space for future opportunities! 


Ideaction Corps is a collaborative of accomplished agencies and freelancers working together for the common good. Our mission is to align people and organizations trying to make the world better with the people and partners they need to help them do it.

StoryStudio Chicago teaches the Art and Science of crafting stories for business. We guide each communicator to master his or her own efficient process for developing persuasive messages that tell an effective business story. Reluctant writers become confident storytellers when they discover our practical techniques for organizing ideas and engaging an audience.
