Description:

The volunteer program at Flight 93 National Memorial is initiating a recruitment campaign for individuals to join our volunteer program in 2017. Increased visitation and the ongoing requests for service from rangers and volunteers continues to grow. During the peak visitation months of 2016 more than 329,600 visitors came to the National Memorial.

“This recruitment effort is being conducted to support the strong work of our knowledgeable Ambassadors and the volunteer greeters who welcome and orient the public daily at Flight 93,” shared Superintendent Stephen Clark. “Our current volunteers continue to be the key to operating the memorial successfully and meeting the ongoing expectations of the visitor.”

The demand for volunteers at Flight 93 is greatest from April-October during the highest periods of visitation. All of the volunteer positions being recruited will work with the Flight 93 ranger staff to provide services to the public. “We’re looking for friendly volunteers who are able to contribute a minimum of 4-8 hours per month helping visitors with basic services, such as directions, site orientation and answering basic questions,” said Adam Shaffer, Volunteer Coordinator for the memorial.

Knowledge of the Flight 93 story and National Memorial is beneficial, but it is not required to volunteer. Training will be offered in the spring to all new volunteers. Anyone looking for more information or interested in joining the volunteer program for 2017, please call or e-mail memorial headquarters to request an application.
