Moving Stories Project
Older Adults Talk About Their Experiences Before, During, and After Immigration

BSW EXPERIENTAL LEARNING (BEL) PROJECT
Fordham University’s Graduate School of Social Service (New York) is proud to host the experiential learning project, “Moving Stories: Older Adults Talk About Their Experiences Before, During, and After Immigration.” This ongoing experiential project partners senior year bachelor’s level social work (BASW) students with older adults, who volunteer to share their personal or family immigration experiences. This intergenerational relationship enables students to:

  • Learn to conduct culturally competent oral history interviews
  • Work collaboratively with older adult partners to create poster size visual accounts of their lives and/or cultures
  • Publicly present their collaborative work experience during a spring semester group forum
