WHY OFFER A VITA STORY CLUB AT YOUR COMMUNITY?

OUR WORKSHOPS
BUILD REAL SOCIAL CONNECTIONS.

Research has shown that life storytelling helps older adults build a connection to their community. They feel listened to, nurtured, and valued. Storytelling groups help seniors open up and share with others, combatting the detrimental health effects of loneliness and isolation.

OUR WORKSHOPS ARE ACCESSIBLE.

Unlike traditional memoir writing groups, our workshops are accessible to those who do not wish or are unable to write. We leverage audio recording and transcription technology to help more older adults preserve and share their life stories without needing to put pen to paper.

OUR WORKSHOPS GUARANTEE PRIVACY.

When participants and/or their families provide written consent to audio recordings, we commit to preserving their privacy. By default, participants’ stories are privately saved and Vita Story Club does not share these stories publicly unless authorized. Through our story platform, participants and their family members can enable private sharing of stories, where they can add friend and family subscribers to their life stories if they wish.

OUR WORKSHOPS CAPTURE THE VIBRANCY
AND DIVERSITY OF YOUR COMMUNITY.

Our audio recordings document a storyteller’s unique life story through their own voice and personality, showcasing each one as an important contributor to your community. Our workshops are able to capture wonderful moments of laughter and bonding between your community members. We often preserve words of gratefulness for the friendship and support they receive from their communities.

OUR WORKSHOPS INCLUDE STORYTELLING SHOWCASE EVENTS.

Institutions can work with Vita Story Club to host Storytelling Showcase Events. Workshop participants perform a life storytelling and these events become a wonderful entertainment series for the larger community to enjoy. It’s a great way to honor their active participation and encourage other members to join.
