USING INTERVIEWS TO GATHER STORIES

Our 2018 Holiday Appeal Insert (Created in Canva.)

Stories, testimonials, photos and videos from our youth, parents and programs inspires others. All personal stories begin with an interview and are best in person, but can be on the phone or even by email or text.


Interviews help us to:

  • Gather first-hand information (and suggestions) about our programs; 
  • Obtain powerful and inspiring testimonials and quotes; 
  • Collect useful photos and videos of youth, parents and our programs; 
  • Witness and document their emotions and outcomes.  

Please view our new interview tip sheet HERE to learn how easy it can be to gather stories by asking a few simple questions.
