16 people are interested
This summer, you can provide excellent service to our visitors and create a memorable experience. Honor, remember, and volunteer.
The National September 11 Memorial and Museum honors and remembers the nearly 3,000 people killed in the attacks of September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993. Through their purchase of meaningful keepsakes at the Museum Store, visitors help preserve history and support the Memorial & Museum’s mission. Summer Retail Greeter volunteers are an essential part of our team as we welcome millions of visitors.
Summer Retail volunteers assist staff in the Museum Store and at the Retail carts on the Memorial during this busy time. As a Summer Retail volunteer, you will greet visitors and provide helpful information about products.
- Inform visitors about products and store promotions
- Share stories behind products as they connect to themes in the Museum, such as recovery efforts and remembrance
- Assist with tagging, inventory, folding t-shirts and restocking items
With training, you can teach visitors stories that they will share with family and friends.
We recommend summer volunteers work two 4-hour shifts per week (8 hours each week) for 2-3 months. We ask that you maintain the same two shifts each week, when possible. Shift times are 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. or 3 p.m. - 7 p.m. We are looking for volunteers who can be available for either shift. You are requested not to miss more than two shifts in the summer. We will ask you to make up missed shifts within two weeks. The Museum Store is open every day.
