Summertime at VOICES

Last week was full of transitions for Voices of September 11th and our staff. Our enthusiastic spring interns completed the last hours of their internship programs just in time to graduate high school! A few days later, our offices were once again full with a new group of New Canaan High School students. For the next few weeks, these summer interns will be working on a memorial project, documenting community response to 9/11. Their focus will range from local town memorials to the National September 11 Memorial in New York City, as well as personal memorials created by families. If their personal biographies tell us anything about the quality of work we can expect, then we are certainly looking forward to seeing their final project in August!
