Helpful Tips from the 9/11 Memorial
Recently, Tuesday's Children staff and mentors toured the 9/11 Memorial. This month, and going forward, we will be sharing helpful information about visiting the Memorial and the progress of the Museum.
As you may know, the Museum will include a memorial exhibition honoring the lives of the 2,983 victims from the September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993 attacks. A crucial aspect of the exhibition will be the spoken memories of family, friends, and coworkers. If you have not yet recorded a remembrance of your loved one, they are inviting you to meet with their oral historian during a set of special Memorial Exhibition Recording Days on May 15th-17th.
Appointments are available from 10:00a.m. - 4:30p.m. each day. These appointments fill quickly, and reservations can be made by calling (877) 671-1636 or emailing email@example.com.
Hosted at the 9/11 Memorial Preview Site, located at 20 Vesey Street, adjacent to the World Trade Center site, recording typically lasts between thirty minutes and an hour. These recordings are deeply important, and all of them become part of the 9/11 Memorial Museum's permanent collection.
To learn more about In Memoriam, please visit their website online at 911memorial.org/remember. Look for monthly updates with helpful information about the Memorial and the Museum in upcoming newsletters.
Tuesday's Children's Mentoring Program is committed to creating long-standing match relationships. Our matches between mentors and mentees well exceed the national match average length.
Join us in celebrating each of these accomplished matches!

Outward Bound Trip 2012
On April 7th, a group of Tuesday's Children teenagers traveled deep into the Florida Everglades on an exclusive Outward Bound canoeing expedition. The group chose to transform their Spring vacation into a journey of personal challenge, and for eight days paddled hard through the Gulf Waters. They gained leadership and teamwork skills, learned nautical navigation techniques, and greater environmental awareness as they steered through mangrove tunnels, marshes and cypress swamps.
One participant stated, "Outward Bound was a great trip and a very rare opportunity to come by. Traveling through the unique Everglades environment was very challenging and taught me so much. From learning knot skills and navigation techniques, to the core of teamwork, the adventure enabled me to grow mentally, physically and spiritually. I bonded strongly with the other members and formed true friendships. Thank you for the opportunity, Tuesday's Children."
Another shared, "The Everglades Outward Bound trip was a once in a life time opportunity. Sharing the waters with so much wildlife, and night sailing in the canoes was unforgettable. The experience taught me so much about myself and the obstacles I am capable of overcoming. This trip had a strong impact on me, and is one I will remember forever."
First Responder Alliance Bowling Event
On Sunday, April 15th, the First Responder Alliance was invited to bowl at Dani's Strike Zone. Thanks to the generosity of Diane at Dani Strike Zone, over 100 responders and their families, along with the Elmont, New York Fire and Police Departments were able to spend the afternoon bowling. Diane also provided prizes, arcade games and lunch for everyone! Toys donated in memory of Mark 'Ski' Gajewski were also raffled off.
A warm and special thanks to Diane and the staff at Dani Strike Zone for providing such a wonderful afternoon for the families that attended.
NY District Attorney's Career Shadow Day
On Friday, April 13th, Tuesday's Children's young adults visited the NY District Attorney's Office to explore the ins-and-outs of the State court system for a Career Shadow Day. The participants learned the logistics of evidence collection, fingerprinting, engineering and watched a K-9 dog presentation. This Career Shadow Day is one of many career days that Tuesday's Children will offer through the Career Resource Center. Keep an eye out for more Career Shadow Day opportunities in the near future!
Special thanks to Wendy and the staff at the DA's Office for including Tuesday's Children and offering a unique experience.
9/11 Memorial and Museum Tour:
Mentors and Tuesday's Children Junior Board
On Wednesday, April 11th, Tuesday's Children mentors and Junior Board members had a private tour of the 9/11 Memorial. A heartfelt tour was given and all were encouraged to experience the Memorial at their own pace. Staff members of the Memorial were on hand to share details and explain the changes that are happening as the construction continues. Both the mentors and Jr. Board members volunteer their time and dedicate themselves to raising awareness for Tuesday's Children.
After the tour, mentors participated in a continuing education training "How Mentors Can Support Mentees Dealing with Traumatic Grief," led by Fran Furman, Director of Counseling. Mentors were able to have an open discussion about their triumphs and challenges through the years of being mentors. Volunteers who are new to the program were joined by mentors who have been involved with Tuesday's Children, some for as long as eight years.
Tuesday's Children thanks the 9/11 Memorial and Museum for the special attention shown to all who attended. A special thank you to Jim, a Tuesday's Children mentor for five years who also serves as a docent for the WTC Tribute Center for making this tour a unique and private experience.
