The Great Thanksgiving Listen

The Great Thanksgiving Listen (SENIOR VOICES) 111615The Great Thanksgiving Listen is a pilot project started by StoryCorps which engages people of all ages to listen and be thankful for the stories our elders have to share.  Although this project is designed for school age students, the concept is a welcome one for everyone to join in on the historic effort.  All you need to participate is a smartphone and the StoryCorps mobile app.  Then simply pick a grandparent, neighbor, family friend, or resident in your senior living community over the age of 65 who you’d like to interview.

This Thanksgiving, engage with the elders in your community.  There are resources here to help you get the most out of your interview experience.

Learn more about this movement on the StoryCorps website.
