A special graduation ceremony was held at the 9/11 Memorial Museum Tuesday evening for high school students honored as the fifth class to have completed the museum ambassador program.

The program offers a behind-the-scenes look into the 9/11 Memorial & Museum, where students entering grades 10 to 12 can examine artifacts and explore ongoing themes and issues raised by 9/11. With this foundation, ambassadors write artifact talks and learn how to effectively present them to visitors.  

Participants engage in after-school sessions at the 9/11 Memorial Museum, which include presentations by guest speakers, artifact investigations, group discussions, museum education techniques and public speaking skills. Students who complete the program are awarded with a $1,000 stipend.
