About Vivan Las VocesSM

Vivan Las Voces is AARP’s national audio story collection project dedicated to capturing the diverse stories and experiences of the U.S. Latino community in collaboration with StoryCorps.

Stories are captured through a conversation format, typically person-to-person, and participation is easy, fun, and rewarding.  You simply invite a loved one, or anyone else you choose, to join you on the free StoryCorps Connect online video conferencing platform to share a 40-minute conversation. 

Recordings will not only be available for participants to cherish and pass down, but the audio and a photo from each conversation also will be archived at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress.  As such, the collection of content from Vivan Las Voces will preserve in history a primary source perspective of the U.S. Latino experience through the powerful medium of storytelling. 

Participation in Vivan Las Voces is open to anyone interested in capturing something special about a loved one’s life through the easy-to-use StoryCorps platform. Conversations can be recorded in English, Spanish, or a mix of the two today by visiting https://storycor.ps/VivanLasVoces.
