Volunteers needed for the My Story Project
Uncover a lost story.
If you’re interested in life stories or film-making then the My Story Project could be up your alley.
The Project explores and documents the personal lives of 300 individuals using Uniting AgeWell’s services in the East region. Its main focus is sharing the value of a client’s past history of their life.
If you volunteer you’ll get a first row ticket to discover the past of the people around you. You’ll get to hear their stories, learn their life experiences and gain a completely new perspective on your life. So, why not get involved?
It’s supported by Perpetual Trustees who offer a wide variety of creative ways of capturing residents and clients to document their diverse lives. Individual stories will be recorded using one or more of the following methods; iMovie, photo-book technology, digital photo frames, scrap books or posters that may be a written biography or another visual art medium.
Your participation will not only help tell a buried story but will also help you gain great extra-curricular activities and valuable work experience.
If you’re interested in getting involved with this Project then contact Uniting AgeWell Volunteer Coordinator Mary Hatzis on (03) 9251 5913 or via email Mhatzis@unitingagewell.org.
