Educational Programs

The Dignity Memorial® Vietnam Wall will allow Intrepid’s Educators a unique opportunity to integrate additional learning about the Vietnam War and its heroes into programs for students:

Power of One

Leadership – Students of New York City public schools will be invited to the Intrepid Museum to partake in our leadership program Power of One. Power of One is Intrepid’s free eminent speaker series in which prominent members of the NYC community and beyond speak to New York City students who are overcoming their own struggles to inspire them to achieve success. By hearing directly from people who experienced challenges and have since risen to success, we hope students will be encouraged to make solid choices of their own and live by the values of respect and responsibility. (60 minute presentations to over 200 students – advanced reservations required).
