The Corporation for National and Community Service, in partnership with My Good Deed, Scholastic, and the Points of Light Institute are announcing the release of comprehensive education resources related to 9/11 National Day of Service and Remembrance to teachers and mentors. These tools will help educators and youth leaders provide constructive lessons on 9/11 and inspire their students to engage in community and volunteer service in observance of 9/11 National Day of Service and Remembrance each year.
Help inspire your students to support this year's 9/11 National Day of Service and Remembrance. Utilize the new lesson plans to will help students reflect on 9/11 in a constructive way, inspiring them to “adopt causes” and take positive action through other community service projects and good deeds.
With the guidance of educators, these official 9/11 National Day of Service and Remembrance materials will help children learn valuable, heartfelt and constructive lessons about the 9/11 experience and the ways in which they can serve their community. We hope that through instruction, students will gain renewed appreciation for the diverse communities in which they live; cultivate a deeper understanding of those who may be different from them; and develop a greater sense of service and compassion in their daily lives.
