My Story Project
February 13 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 1:00pm on Monday and Tuesday, repeating indefinitely
Monday & Tuesdays (except the Third Monday & Tuesday of each month)
In the “My Story Project” a skilled team of senior volunteers helps other seniors create DVD’s containing their memories, stories and photos. This project was started in 2011 with a grant and has helped 50+ seniors complete videos. Taping takes place in the Senior Center. Senior volunteers receive on-going training in digital video, computer technologies, and coaching other seniors to organize the material they wish to include on the DVD. This training assures a professional quality experience in coaching, camera work and editing, including the integration of photos into the story. Take the journey to find out who you are today, and who you have been in the past, and share your story with family and friends. Please call the Senior Center at (916) 455-6339 to find out more about the program, volunteer or to book a recording session.
Volunteers Needed for Filming
The My Story Project at the Sierra 2 Senior Center films the life stories from older adults and produces a DVD to share with their family and friends. The presentations are organized with the help of a “story coach” who works with the star of the video. Other volunteers operate the camera equipment, set up lights and backgrounds, and finally edit the video with photos integrated into the DVD. Additional volunteers are sought to help with this project, especially those with MAC computer experience. Please contact the Senior Center at 455-6339 for more information.
