Shrayber Application: Part One

The Yiddish Book Center’s Wexler Oral History Project announces the return of a wonderful volunteer opportunity: We are seeking five volunteers to serve as shraybers, oral history field processors, to help us mine our growing oral history collection for great stories and make them accessible to the world. This opportunity is open to qualified applicants across the country and beyond, who work from their home computers. See the full description and qualifications for the program on our Get Involved page.

If you are interested, please fill out this application by Wednesday, May 11, 2016

Please note that this is a two-part application—after you submit this page, you will be taken automatically to the second part. There is also a link to Part Two at the bottom of this page.

Please address all inquiries to the oral history administrative assistant, Natalie King, at [email protected].
