Facilitate an Interview

What is the role of the facilitator in the interview?

  • Explain the overall interview process
  • Walk through the consent paperwork
  • Operate and monitor the recording equipment
  • Prompt the interviewer, if needed, to keep the conversation flowing

What is the required time commitment?

We ask that volunteer facilitators commit to 1–3 interviews per month.

Do I need any previous experience working on an oral history project?
