We believe that everyone has a story to tell. Do you know a senior with an incredible story that others need to hear? Can they talk about something that changed their lives, such as:
- Historical events
- Going to college
- Life as a new parent
- Starting a new job
- Retiring from a job
- Becoming a grandparent
- Death of a loved one
Seniors will be asked to commit to three Zoom conversations with a volunteer Story Collector:
- The first conversation is a shorter, get-to-know-you call with prompts and guidance. Before the second conversation, they will be given reflection prompts to remember specific stories in their lives where they have overcome adversity.
- The second conversation will be a bit longer (60-90 minutes) and enable seniors to really delve into their stories and reflect on the meaning of these stories in their lives (prompts and guidance will be provided to both the Senior Storytellers and the Story Collectors)
- The third conversation will be video recorded and feature the one or two stories of strength that matter most to the seniors.
