The 9/11 Memorial & Museum kicked off National Volunteer Week on Monday evening with a special reception honoring the institution’s many volunteers.

All week long, the 9/11 Memorial & Museum will be hosting special activities for its volunteers. Additionally, live talks given by Museum docents are scheduled for Tuesday and Thursday at noon.  During these “Our Service, Our Story” talks, Museum docent volunteers will discuss their 9/11 experience and their reasons for giving back.
