LISTEN - Oral History Training
This free program was held throughout 2012 for
kids and teens with generous support from Boise OfficeMax
Community Fund. LISTEN training sessions were held at
community centers, library branches, and other public venues.
Sessions provided basic training for children, teens, and
adults to conduct interviews with family members and seniors
in their community. Check back in early 2014 for information about
other oral history training programs!
