Service-Learning Proposal Description


Briefly describe the project and the community to be addressed.
Answer Stories have power. This project is a unique opportunity to harvest the wisdom, the humor, and memories of men and women who have journeyed almost a full century on this planet. Our ‘Tiny Stories’ project provides the opportunity to gather the oral history in audio mp3 format or video mp4 format. We provide the audio and video tools, interview questions, and release forms. We will also provide some education regarding elderhood and the empowering impact of preserving the history and legacy of an elder. You will not only complete a project, but you will make a profound difference! We need you to listen to the storytellers and save the stories to preserve the legacy of the Elders. To learn more about our project, check out our Tiny stories project on our website!
