We are survivors, volunteers, first responders, and family members of those lost on 9/11/2001. We now volunteer at the 9/11 Tribute Center in NYC. AUA!
The 9/11 Tribute Center is a project of the September 11th Families’ Association. Our volunteers are all from the 9/11 community: survivors, first responders, Lower Manhattan residents, volunteers who helped during the recovery, and family members of lost loved ones. Our galleries are located across from the 9/11 Memorial in NYC at 120 Liberty Street, but we are a separate organization.
In remembrance of 9/11, our staff and three of our volunteers will be here answer any questions you might have about 9/11, the recovery and rebuilding, our organization, or education.
- Ann, recently retired small business owner and dancer. Her husband was FDNY in the Bronx. His body was recovered near to the Last Column, the final steel beam ceremonially removed from Ground Zero.
- Matt, currently working on the construction of the transit hub at the new WTC site. His father was FDNY and his body was recovered in a stairwell in the south tower with six other people.
- Peter, recently retired and was involved in the rebuilding program. Peter was assigned as a member of engineering team supervising and providing technical support at Ground Zero until the end of the recovery on 6/30/2002. He also was at the WTC during the February 26, 1993 bombing.
- Tribute Center Staff are also here to answer questions you may have about the programs, collections, volunteering, anything!
This week we launched a new collection of resources, Teaching 9/11: Lesson Plans for Multiple Disciplines featuring inspiring interviews with teachers and their students, and will also be offering new and improved Distance Learning programs open to classrooms anywhere!
EDIT 1:18pm -- THANK YOU SO MUCH EVERYBODY. Our guides are hungry for lunch, and one of them has to head out to a tour soon. You all were amazing and our guides were really grateful for your heartfelt comments.
If you have further questions our ed staff regularly manages this account, but we can't answer more guide questions-- for that you'll have to come on a tour! Please check out our website and resources posted above!
