|Why you might want to consider taking this opportunity:||
Volunteer Opportunity (Future Leaders aged 18-30 years): Volunteer for the Empathy Squad to make a difference in your community through the power of storytelling. In the midst of global upheaval, and the search for social, class, and racial justice, we are looking for volunteers to generate empathy-building dialogue through the collection of stories and interviews.
Oral storytelling forges connections between people and ideas, makes information more accessible, and helps us understand the ties that bind us. Oral history nuances the stories of the past and present, helps us understand how communities experience history, and allows us to learn together on the path towards a shared future.
Amplify voices, centre overlooked stories, and celebrate the unsung heroes in your community.
