Once Upon Our Time Capsule is on a mission to amplify youth voices.

Every year, we partner with kids across the country to create an Annual Youth Time Capsule that documents their experiences and voices. In a spin on the traditional time capsule, these stories aren’t buried for the future – they’re digitally preserved, and open for ongoing learning and discovery.

With programming centered around the personal stories shared, we focus on having an impact at three levels:

Individual Kids

We help build their sense of belonging and empathy – key elements to their well-being.

Community

We build bridges across individuals and groups of different backgrounds.

Public-at-large

We leverage the data and insights shared to bring greater attention and awareness to the perspectives and needs of kids.
