THE VOICE OF WITNESS EDUCATION PROGRAM
Our education program connects educators, students, and human rights advocates with important, unheard stories in the VOW book series and supports them with curricula and training to help them conduct their own oral history projects. By engaging with these stories and learning to tell their own, the people we work with discover their own voices and their own relationship to human rights and social justice issues in their communities and around the world. Over the past year, we reached over 20,000 high school to graduate level students and community members.
Our education team offers:
- Year-round site visits and workshops for schools and community organizations
- Amplifying Unheard Voices, a summer intensive oral history training
- Common Core-aligned curricula through our website and publication The Power of the Story: The Voice of Witness Teacher’s Guide to Oral History
- Tailored consultancies for schools, organizations, and individuals seeking more in-depth storytelling support
- Free copies of The Voice of Witness Reader and access to a nationwide learning community through the Sharing History Initiative
