Ling and Sofie

We’re always in need of volunteer support

We wouldn’t exist today without our amazing team of volunteers. Please complete the form below if you’re interested in volunteering your time and/or skills.

  • One-on-one program: You’ll be paired with one older adult to help him/her create a memoir. You’ll be responsible for meeting with your author ~10-12 times over the course of 2-3 months to record your conversations on a smartphone. All recordings are sent to MLMS which are transcribed and edited for you. All we need from you is an open heart and open ears!

  • Events: We host intergenerational storytelling events throughout San Francisco to help build a more connected and empathetic city. We’re looking for volunteers to help plan and execute our upcoming events.

I am so grateful to have been introduced to this organization. This is a wonderful opportunity for me to put ‘my life’ into words. You have no idea what this means to me.
— Ling, senior author
Ling is hilarious. She’s one of my people. She has a vibrant life, but she still makes room for me. She loves hanging out. I’ve told all my friends about Ling and want them to meet her. She’s part of my life now.

Whenever possible, we try to pair volunteers and seniors with similar interests. Examples include cooking, travel, music, and the LGBTQ community.
We’re always looking for additional operational support. If you’re interested in helping grow My Life, My Stories, please list any related skills or experience (i.e. cinematography, grant writing, Salesforce, PR, bookkeeping, event planning).
