The theme for this project is:

Relationships, Storytelling, Writing

The Legacy Project invites high school students to interview a hospice patient over the course of several weeks, exploring their past, validating what is important in their lives, and creating a friendship. At the end of the semester, the families of the patient are presented with a final project that captures the stories that the student obtained during their weekly visits throughout the semester. Final projects from students could include a book that records stories, a photo album accompanied by stories, or an audio/video history. Training for students will be provided beforehand as well as on an on-going basis throughout the school year. Materials will also be provided to assist students with collecting the history while at their visit. Students will need to have transportation to get to and from an individual’s home.
