Become a Volunteer

StoryCorps is grateful for the outpouring of interest from our volunteers. At present we are seeking volunteers during the National Day of Listening, as well as during regular business hours in our Brooklyn office. (Please note that volunteer opportunities on the Mobile Tour are coordinated by the local public radio station at each stop.)

Join the Volunteer Corps for the National Day of Listening

Our first-ever National Day of Listening was celebrated on Friday, November 28, 2008. We asked everyday people across the country to download our free Do-It-Yourself Instruction Guide, sit down with a loved one – like a grandmother, friend, or neighbor – and record their own conversations and stories during the National Day of Listening.

Volunteer at our Brooklyn office

StoryCorps is seeking volunteers during regular business hours (M – F, 9:30 am – 5:30 pm) at our office in Fort Greene, Brooklyn to help archive, perform community outreach, and help our office grow. If you are available to volunteer at our office during these times, please fill out an online inquiry form and we will add you to our volunteer list.

Due to demand and space limitations, we may not be able to accommodate you immediately. However, we will notify you if any new volunteer opportunities arise. If you are unable to come to our office on a volunteer basis, we encourage you to apply for one of our internships.

When you give, you help us record, share and preserve these voices for generations to come.

Each week, the StoryCorps podcast shares these unscripted conversations, revealing the wisdom, courage, and poetry in the words of people you might not notice walking down the street.
