StoryCorps’ mission is to preserve and share humanity’s stories in order to build connections between people and create a more just and compassionate world.
We do this to remind one another of our shared humanity, to strengthen and build the connections between people, to teach the value of listening, and to weave into the fabric of our culture the understanding that everyone’s story matters. At the same time, we are creating an invaluable archive for future generations.
Since our founding in 2003, StoryCorps’ team has expanded to include close to 100 employees nationwide. We are headquartered in Fort Greene, Brooklyn, with permanent StoryBooths located in Atlanta and Chicago as well as a MobileBooth that travels across the country recording stories.
