It’s been more than two decades since 9/11. To honor those we lost and the heroes who helped us persevere, join AmeriCorps and 911Day.org to unite in service and do good. Together, we can strengthen our nation and inspire a new generation of civic-minded Americans on the September 11 National Day of Service and Remembrance.
Americans of all ages and backgrounds are invited to join and lead 9/11 Day volunteer projects, and community events. Through service alongside our neighbors, we can build more equitable and just communities that advance racial equity, create opportunity, and foster respect for individual differences. You might even spark a passion and create relationships between communities and individuals across divides that extend past this day to inspire a lifetime of service in all Americans.
The 9/11 Day of Service is Monday, Sept. 11, 2023. You and your partners are encouraged to host, partner, and engage in service on this day and the days surrounding.
