Road to Resilience: Memories that Move Us Forward

If you could draw a picture of your person who died, what would it look like? What do you miss about them? If you could talk to them, what would you say? What do you wish they knew about who you are now?

Road to Resilience: Memories that Move Us Forward from StoryCorps, in partnership with the New York Life Foundation, leverages the power of stories and storytelling to help children cope with the death of a parent, sibling, or loved one.

Through this project, we partner with bereavement support organizations to provide opportunities for children and their families to preserve memories of their loved ones, share their grief journeys, or simply to record themselves as they are.

In 2019, we launched StoryCorps DIY: Road to Resilience, an online course for organizations serving children and families in grief. This course includes special resources on how to adopt our interview model for children and families who are grieving, including age-appropriate Great Questions lists, kid-friendly animations and audio clips, discussion guides, and ideas for engaging communities in topics related to children’s grief.
