We primarily partner with other nonprofits and institutions that are interested in recording and archiving voices in their communities. We also offer fee-for-service trainings and workshops for organizations or groups seeking to launch their own recording project.
In our StoryCorps cities (Atlanta and Chicago) and stops along our Mobile Tour, we partner with local organizations that serve communities whose voices are least heard in our history books and in the media. These partnerships are free of charge.
Organizations in other locations can bring our staff to their community to facilitate on-site recording days or trainings to create their own ongoing recording and archiving project. Program fees for StoryCorps training partnerships start at approximately $7,000, and fees for recording partnerships start at approximately $15,000. Send us an inquiry to find out more about specific fees for your project, and read about some of our partnerships here. Please note that we generally need to start planning on-site recordings and trainings three months in advance.
The StoryCorps App is a tool that is available to anyone, anywhere at no cost, and no formal partnership is needed. Check out our Strategies for Groups to learn more about how you can get started recording and archiving right way.
We also offer corporate partnerships and collaborations.
