What to bring for Thanksgiving? How about the StoryCorps App! Make history with us! Youth interview an elder, family member or mentor for the Great Thanksgiving Listen.

How it works?

  1. Choose someone to interview. (Grandparent, parent, uncle, aunt, neighbor, mentor, coach, teacher, ...)

  2. Pick great questions. Find a quiet place to record. Listen closely. (The StoryCorps App will help you with questions and record the interview: Download the free app here:

  3. When you're finished, share your interview with the world. (Must be 13 years or older. If younger, have an adult submit your work. (parent or guardian)
