Americans All is a nonprofit community-outreach program that specifically benefits
non-academic school activities* and small business/service providers by using
a unique storytelling tool and turnkey fundraising approach.
Despite our successful distribution of supplemental classroom resources to more than 2,000 schools and libraries nationwide, we aim to stay clear of the divisive politics that are now affecting the teaching of social studies in many school districts. We now focus on providing students with resources that can support their participation in non-academic school activities. We have also repurposed our unique storytelling tool to enable students to help families that lost a member(s) to COVID-19 to gain closure, and to permanently preserve the memories, contributions and achievements of their loved one(s). We also need to recognize the incredible, unselfish work of the first responders who risked their own lives to help those in need.
By focusing on publishing the stories of people who helped shape—and continue to shape—our nation’s local histories, we can help all generations pass on the knowledge they inherit from their families, so children understand their roots, embrace their identity and learn how to relate to others.
Libraries and historical societies specialize in local history and, therefore, are ideal entities to partner with us to collect and share the legacy stories that help define and strengthen their communities. Our education organization registration process for Americans All now also applies to libraries and historical societies. However, because we do not have libraries or historical societies in our education database, they need to register the same way schools not included in our database have need to register.
1. To become a School, Library or Historical Society Legacy Partner and receive a free story for publication on our Heritage Honor Roll, education organizations must first designate a point of contact to set up a free user account.
2. The education organization’s point of contact then serves as an agent for the organization and registers the library or historical society for Americans All using the organization’s e-mail address.
3. The organization’s point of contact can also join Americans All and create a legacy story for our Heritage Honor Roll by registering with his or her personal e-mail address.
4. An individual can be the point of contact for more than one education organization. We identify our members only by their e-mail address.
