The 9/11 Memorial will honor National Volunteer Week with an information table on the Memorial plaza, live talks given by Museum docents and special activities for our volunteers.

From Sunday, April 12 through Saturday, April 18, a tent on the Memorial plaza will be open to the public to highlight the volunteer programs offered at the Memorial and Museum. In addition, on each weekday at noon, a Museum docent volunteer will discuss an artifact and their service experience during live talks, part of the Museum’s “The Stories They Tell” series. This is free for all ticketed Museum visitors.

Volunteers for the 9/11 Memorial will also have an opportunity to attend a thank you ceremony, a special talk on the development of volunteer programs in the wake of tragedy, and a New York Mets game.
