Trainings & Workshops

The IHRC offers Immigrant Stories trainings and workshops. Our trainings introduce participants to the project and explain how they can use our story-making website to help their students and community members create their own digital stories. These trainings are 2 hours. Our digital story-making workshops are generally two full days. Participants make their own Immigrant Story from start to finish and add it to the Immigrant Stories collection.

Email Elizabeth Venditto with questions or to suggest trainings and workshops in your area.
