Americans All (AA) has developed a unique, multi-purpose storytelling tool that benefits three
separate, but interconnected, groups: students (create virtual yearbooks for clubs and teams,
and access discounts); schools (a turnkey revenue generator), and local business/professional
service providers (additional exposure). Our web-based app is free, easy to install,
access and update, and the multi-media stories can be published in multiple languages.
Click here for step-by-step instructions on "How to Register a School as a Legacy Partner for Americans All."
To register for Americans All, each school must designate a point of contact (poc) to serve as its agent, using the school's
e-mail address. The individual does not have to be a member of Americans All to create a Legacy Partner landing page(s) for a school, and the individual can be a poc for more than one school. Our Legacy Partner landing pages enable viewers to see all the individual stories published on the Heritage Honor Roll that are associated with a school or any of its teams or clubs. Schools and their teams and clubs can create as many landing pages as desired. For example, landing pages could be created, on an annual basis, for each sports team, academic, social, community service or special interest clubs. Each landing page has a short summary about the team or club, an image and the stories written by its members. Students post their stories directly to these pages, but the Legacy Partner administrator can easily remove (or reinstate) any story they feel does not belong on their page.
The school automatically becomes a member of Americans All when the poc begins to create the school's free story on our Heritage Honor Roll. Although the poc's contact information appears on the registration pages for a school, his/her personal contact information is not shared or published, and we identify our members only by their e-mail address and Zip Code.
For greater visibility, the school's story can be shared on the Americans All home page(s) of other Legacy Partners. This can be done at any time by clicking on “Edit my legacy story” under the “Action” tab on the school's “Welcome Back” page.
*Non-curriculum activities include, but are not limited to, extra-curricular activities such as sports, performing arts, volunteerism, student government, and clubs that focus on topics such as academics, vocational and professional, service, arts and crafts, mechanical shops, hobbies, publications/media, languages, religion, and so on. They also include events like excursions and social outreach programs, to name a few. These activities provide a channel for reinforcing the lessons learned in the classroom, offering students the opportunity to apply academic skills in a real-world context, and thus help contribute to a well-rounded education. Our storytelling tool can be quite useful in many of these areas.
