Students in 9/11 Tribute Center

At the 9/11 Tribute Center, we use the personal stories of those who were there to help young people connect to this recent history that has changed their world.

Guiding our young people, many of whom were born after 2001, to understand how our city and world was changed on 9/11 is central to the mission of the 9/11 Tribute Center. Personal experiences are used to illustrate the humanity and community that was both lost and found in the aftermath of 9/11. We strive to help students appreciate the scope and impact of the disaster as well as the enormous outpouring of compassion in response. Our goal is for every young person to experience the loss, courage and generosity of those who lived through the attacks of September 11, 2001.

Students can visit the 9/11 Tribute Galleries, take an audio tour onto the 9/11 Memorial, utilize our online materials for their classrooms, or participate in a Long-Distance Learning (videoconferencing) program with one of our guides. Teachers can attend a Professional Development workshop or bring personal stories into their classroom by using our online materials. Parents can receive guidance on how to start a conversation at home.
