The 9/11 Tribute Museum in Lower Manhattan is seeking 9/11-connected educators to share their stories with visitors in the museum and on walking tours on the Memorial Plaza. Training to become a volunteer at the Tribute Museum is provided, and no prior volunteer experience is required. The museum, a project of the September 11th Families Association and a nonprofit organization, offers visitors from around the world the opportunity to learn about the events of Sept. 11, 2001, and post-9/11 recovery and rebuilding from those who were there or are personally connected to the events. Every volunteer has a direct connection to 9/11, as a survivor, first responder or recovery worker, family member who lost a loved one or a resident or employee displaced by the attacks.
Training workshops for volunteers are scheduled for three weekends at the 9/11 Tribute Museum, 92 Greenwich St., Manhattan. An optional orientation session and dinner will take place on March 2, April 13 and June 1 from 6 to 9 p.m. A required program demonstration, guided walking tour and storytelling workshop, with breakfast and lunch provided, are scheduled for March 3, April 14 and June 2 from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
