Our Vision
The September 11th Education Trust will become the premier resource for 9/11 and civic literacy educational programming, serving as a living tribute to the thousands of innocent men, women and children killed on this historic day in American history. 

Our Mission
The September 11th Education Trust
World Class 9/11 and Civic Literacy Education Programming

Evolving from its genesis as the WTC United Family Group—one of the original and largest of the 9/11 community organizations—the September 11th Education Trust produces comprehensive, flexible, and engaging 9/11 and civic literacy education programs that protect the legacy and memory of the victims of the terrorist attacks, preserve and harness the lessons of 9/11 and its aftermath, unify and direct our nation’s youth toward informed and effective civic participation. Our lesson plans are personalized and enriched through first-hand accounts, filmed oral histories, and authentic, primary archival materials to permanently record this shared historic event in a way that is not stagnant, but inspiring and relevant to the nation’s youth.
