Americans All makes it possible for an individual to invest $24.50 to record, share and archive their legacy story—an incredibly valuable asset. In addition to our storytelling component, members and their families gain access to our current and future social studies resources—a $500+ value. They also get discounts from program partners and a free 3-month trial subscription to our Social Legacy Network—worth $1,750 in transferable tuition discounts at participating colleges and universities. Students helping seniors create their legacy story receive a free legacy story for themselves, and schools and libraries participate for free.
The history of our nation is deeply tied to immigration. Ancestors of all Americans came here from diverse locations. Many of their unrecorded stories represent history’s missing pages.
- All generations need to pass on the knowledge they inherit from their families. This is extremely important; without it, how will children understand their roots, embrace their identity and learn how to relate to others?
- Most people, especially students, rely too heavily on electronic devices to do just about everything. Consequently, it's getting harder for them to become proficient in written communication, a skill they will need as they move on from high school to college or job interviews.
