First Literacy Grant Funded Project

Original Synopsis: The Digital Memoir Project will support 16 low-income immigrant seniors in recounting and preserving their experiences through authentic images and text. Students will meet 1 ½ hours weekly for facilitated conversation and writing exercises using carefully selected prompts. At the end of the 12-week project, students’ stories will be professionally assembled into an e-book that can be shared online or printed for purchase. Ultimately, the Digital Memoir Project participants will improve the oral and written English skills and confidence while creating a meaningful keepsake that can be passed on across cultures and generations.
