Tunnel to Towers 9/11 Institute™

Committed to assisting educators in teaching children across the country about 9/11, the fallen and the heroic sacrifices of first responders who made the ultimate sacrifice while saving others.

The Tunnel to Towers 9/11 Institute™ is our September 11, 2001 education program. It is the go-to resource for educators of all types to get the non-fiction, first-person resources they need to teach children across the country about the extraordinary heroism and goodness of everyday people who inspired our nation and demonstrated the strength and resilience of America’s spirit.


The Tunnel to Towers 9/11 Institute™ offers full curriculum units for teachers. All units have been developed by educators within the 9/11 community, are based on non-fiction, true accounts of the day and include social studies lessons, learning activities and background for instructors to ensure ease of implementation.

Since its inception in 2001, the Tunnel to Towers Foundation has honored and paid tribute to the 2,977 innocent souls who lost their lives on September 11, 2001, including the heroism of first responders who gave their lives protecting others, and those who continue to lose their lives from 9/11-related illnesses. Our longstanding commitment to helping America to Never Forget has never wavered.

We vowed to NEVER FORGET; it’s time to educate future generations.
