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. Responsibilities include:

- 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 shifts each week, when possible. The Museum Store is open every day.


Join our exceptional team today. Summer volunteers of all ages 16+ are welcome. For more information and to apply, please visit www.911memorial.org/volunteer or contact us at volunteer@911memorial.org

Deadline to apply is June 5, 2018. We will hold group interviews in June.
