StoryCorps Storytelling

 

LeadingAge and StoryCorps have collaborated on a NEW story collection project, StoryCorps Connect.  This new free digital platform was developed to address the pressing need for connection during the coronavirus pandemic, to older adults, their families, and caregivers across America, with the goal of conducting and recording meaningful remote interviews between loved ones.  

We invite all aging services providers to offer this platform to residents, clients, & staff as an opportunity to record, share, and preserve their stories.

We want your stories! Record and preserve a meaningful conversation this weekend with a loved one using StoryCorps Connect. To get the most out of the experience, check out the LeadingAge & StoryCorps interview materials. #LeadingAgeVoice https://ldng.ag/2Ao33xP [include infocard]

 

StoryCorps Connect achieves 2 goals: 

1. A purpose to connect with loved ones during this challenging time of isolation.

2. A way to give back. Your interview—and story—can be archived in the Library of Congress for future generations.

 

StoryCorps makes the interview process easy. Use these materials to plan your interview today! Use these sample social media posts and graphics to help spread the word to your members, their residents, clients, families, and staff.
