Our Mission

The September 11th Education Trust

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. Lesson plans are personalized and enriched through first-hand accounts, filmed oral histories, and primary source materials to permanently record this shared historic event in a way that is not stagnant, but inspiring and relevant to the nation’s youth.

World Trade Center United Family Group 9/11 Victims’ Support Services

In an effort to meet the ongoing and evolving needs of those directly impacted by the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the September 11th Education Trust—through its WTC United Family Group program offerings—provides ongoing services for our 9/11 community members—victims’ families, survivors and rescue workers—through innovative peer support programs including our September 11th/Oklahoma City Family Exchange, advocacy on 9/11 issues, outreach, and other means of healing.
