About the speaker
Benjamin (Jamie) Salka is the CEO of Story Pirates, a nationally respected education and media organization founded in 2003 to celebrate the words and ideas of young people. With acclaimed programs in place at over 200 schools from coast to coast, Story Pirates challenges first-rate actors and comedians to perform stories written by children to celebrate students’ innate creativity.
Under Jamie’s leadership, Story Pirates has grown from a small start-up to reach tens of thousands of children each year in New York and around the country. On January 17, 2009, the weekend of President Obama’s Inauguration, Story Pirates was invited to present a show at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C., taking election-themed stories by local D.C. students and bringing them to life for thousands of people.
