Ambassadors
Students entering grades 10 to 12 can apply to take part in a unique, yearlong program. Offering a behind-the-scenes look into the 9/11 Memorial & Museum, ambassadors examine artifacts from the Museum 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 Museum visitors. In addition, ambassadors gain professional experience by helping with hands-on activities for young visitors and their caregivers.
