Americans All, a program of the 32-year-old, nonprofit People of America Foundation, advocates multimedia Web-based storytelling to incorporate legacy preservation into a comprehensive in social studies education. Legacy stories acknowledge that heritage and culture are rich aspects of personal and group identity. The experiences, accomplishments and contributions reflected in these stories lend future generations knowledge, insight and inspiration. Social studies education helps prepare students to succeed in our nation’s participatory democracy and in our increasingly diverse economy and workforce. Our foundation’s work is guided by David McCullough’s belief that “history is the story of people.” Importantly, we invest more than half of our membership revenue to support excellence in social studies instruction.
We offer a low-cost membership for individuals/families and a free user account for schools and groups/businesses/organizations.
