We partner with a variety of institutions that are interested in recording and archiving voices in their communities.
In Atlanta, New York City, and at stops along our Mobile Tour, StoryCorps partners with local organizations that serve communities whose voices are least heard in our history books and in the media. We also occasionally seek to partner with organizations based in specific communities as part of an active, funded initiative(Examples include our Military Voices Initiative and One Small Step). These partnerships are free of charge.

Please note that we generally need to start planning on-site recordings and trainings at least three months in advance. To learn more or send us an inquiry about a potential partnership, visit our website.
Finally, we also have a number of resources available to groups and organizations that we aren't able to formally partner with. The StoryCorps App and our remote recording platform StoryCorps Connect are tools available to anyone, anywhere at no cost, and no formal partnership is needed. In addition to our recording tools, StoryCorps DIY is a free set of resources to help nonprofit organizations develop their own interview collection projects. After years of working closely with community partners, we've compiled our best practices to help you create a sustainable community program around storytelling.
