9/11 Day of Service 2012: Working with the Community

September 11, 2013 is almost here and in the days leading up to the September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance many Americans across the country are rolling up their sleeves in service and fellowship. Are you ready to get out and serve

Making time to volunteer for the September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance is a great way to engage with your community while honoring the victims and survivors of 9/11. Whether you plan on grabbing a paintbrush, mentoring a young person or helping to clean up a public space in the next few days, know that what you do makes a world of difference.

Still looking for a way to participate in your area? Sign up for a project near you in honor of the day.

Looking to plan your own project or student lesson? It's never too late! Check out our website for many helpful planning and educator resources.

Already connected to a project? Take a moment to dedicate your service on 9/11, reflect on why you are serving and share your thoughts and photos from the day:

  • Tweet about your day to @ServeDotGov with the hashtag #911Day
  • Get connected with other volunteers or participate in the dialogue on Facebook.
  • Remember to add your volunteer service to your LinkedIn profile; volunteering can help build valuable skills as well as get the word out about the organizations and causes you care about most!

The September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance is the culmination of an effort originally launched in 2002 by 9/11 family members and support groups and led by the organization MyGoodDeed. These individuals and organizations worked to establish the service day as a way to honor those who were lost and to rekindle the spirit of unity and compassion that followed the attacks. The September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance was established into law by the Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act in 2009, and furthers President Obama's call to service, United We Serve.
