FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Thursday, September 17, 2009

**MEDIA ADVISORY**


9/11 MEMORIAL & MUSEUM SHARES NEW 9/11 EDUCATIONAL MATERIALS
TO ENCOURAGE YOUTH SERVICE
Memorial & Museum Honored at New York City’s PS/IS 266 Real Heroes
Kick-Off Assembly

On Friday, September 18, 2009, the National September 11 Memorial & Museum will participate in the PS/IS 266 Real Heroes Kick-Off Assembly that will use new 9/11 educational materials to encourage youth service.

In August, the Memorial & Museum launched commemorative educational materials, The Spirit of Volunteerism: 9/11 and Beyond. The materials include an 8-minute film of the same name and related discussion questions and activity suggestions that are designed to encourage students to work together to commemorate 9/11 by participating in acts of service. The film describes, through first-person accounts, the various ways that eight individuals chose to respond to 9/11 through acts of service and volunteerism.

Two of the individuals featured in the film, Ada Rosario Dolch, Executive Director of the Executive Leadership Program, Council of School Supervisors and Administrators, and Ron Vega from the National September 11 Memorial & Museum will be honored as Real Heroes at the Assembly for their work after the 9/11 attacks.

PS/IS 266 Real Heroes’ program honors individuals or groups that have the determination and endurance to perform selfless acts for the benefits of others and the feeling that they get in return, sometimes despite serious challenges. Students are recognized for their actions through a program called Random Acts of Kindness (A-OK) and are eligible to be recognized as an Apprentice Hero by performing these acts of kindness. All students are honored at a monthly basis.

When:


Friday, September 18, 2009
Media should arrive at 8:30 am
Assembly will begin at 8:50 am
Where:

PS/IS 266
74-10 Commonwealth Boulevard
