What to Expect

Become a Community Partner

Our goal is to make the StoryCorps recording experience accessible to all. One way we do that is by partnering with local organizations that serve diverse populations. StoryCorps interviews celebrate the voices and milestones in your community and encourage meaningful interactions between your organization and the people you serve. Community partnerships are free of charge, and conversations can be recorded in any language.

Conviértase en nuestro aliado

Nuestro objetivo es que todas/os puedan tener acceso a la experiencia de grabación con StoryCorps. Una de las formas en las que hacemos eso posible es al formar alianzas con organizaciones locales que sirven a poblaciones diversas en cada una de las paradas del tour. Las grabaciones de StoryCorps celebran las voces y éxitos de su comunidad e incentivan interacciones significativas entre su organización y su comunidad. Nuestras alianzas no tienen un costo y las conversaciones pueden ocurrir en cualquier idioma.
