HOW IT WORKS

Our regular offerings include oral history trainings, workshops, and curricular support to a wide variety of educators, storytellers, organizations, and social justice advocates.

Workshop participants engage in an interactive process that introduces the skills, ethics, and social significance of creating oral history, as exemplified by Voice of Witness and other leading practitioners in the field.

We also offer a limited number of “high touch, high impact” consultancy engagements for clients seeking more in-depth support.

Each consultancy is tailored to the client’s needs, which might include using storytelling to empower the constituents they serve, consulting on curricular resources, learning how to best understand and share their organization’s work, or developing specific storytelling projects. The timeframe for consultancies vary depending on the client’s needs.

Our client partners include national youth education organizations, mental health practitioners, museums, and philanthropic organizations.

Consultancy costs (planning, materials, transportation, and facilitation) are determined on a case-by-case basis.

For more information, please contact Education Program Director Cliff Mayotte.

RATES FOR SITE VISITS AND WORKSHOPS

In an effort to be as inclusive as possible, our fee for service operates on a sliding scale. We ask that participants or their supporting schools and organizations contribute at whatever level their budget can accommodate. This allows us to work with a broad spectrum of teachers and learners.
