Training & Workshops

The IHRC offers Immigrant Stories trainings and workshops. Our trainings familiarize participants with our digital story-making website so that they can teach others to make digital stories on the website. We also discuss strategies to incorporate Immigrant Stories into the classroom or an organization’s existing programs. These trainings are generally 90 minutes. Our digital story-making workshops are two full days. Participants make their own Immigrant Story from start to finish and add it to the Immigrant Stories collection.
