Story Corps Service-Learning Opportunity

Dear Friends:

 The Corporation for National and Community Service is teaming up with StoryCorps on its 2nd Annual National Day of Listening, November 27 to highlight the value of service during this holiday season.

 We are inviting the public to interview everyday service heroes who help to shape the future of communities across the country—from volunteer firefighters to youth mentors to veterans returning from active dutyas part of the National Day of Listening. Woven together, these stories will help illustrate how volunteering can answer national challenges and trumpet the extraordinary acts of service that make a difference in the lives of so many Americans.

 We need your help to make this project a success! Join us on Friday, November 20 for a conference call with Katie McGowan of StoryCorps to discuss how your organization can participate in the National Day of Listening. Below is the call-in information.

When:             Friday, November 20 @ 1 PM EST
Dial In:            888-566-6585    
Passcode:        58071

StoryCorps has provided Do-It-Yourself interview instructions to help your organization’s principals and volunteers record and upload an interview, and a tool kit with sample media material. These documents and other aspects of the project will be discussed on the conference call.

Looking forward to working with you on this exciting project. Please feel free to contact Ashley Etienne, the Corporation’s Press Secretary at 202.606.6944 if you have any questions.
