Welcome to the Red Bandanna Project

Here you will learn about the Red Bandanna Project curricula and lessons for character development, social and emotional learning for young people. These lessons have been inspired by the example and spirit of Welles Remy Crowther, a 9/11 Civilian Hero known around the world as the “Man in the Red Bandanna” for his selfless, heroic actions during his final hour at the World Trade Center. Stories of other people whose actions have reflected exemplary character are shared and explored as well.
Lessons on Leadership, Caring for Others, TEAM, The Power of One, Bridging Divides, Forgiveness and Carpe Diem have been developed for schools and youth programs by a team of educators of 30 to 40 years experience in their fields, with an advisory group of educational professionals. Three of the six lead writers have written curricula for the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, the New Jersey Holocaust Commission and one for the US Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC as well.
You can learn more about Welles, the curricula, the writers and advisors of the Red Bandanna Project on this website.
Development of the Red Bandanna Project curricula was supported by the Fetzer Institute in partnership with the Welles Remy Crowther Charitable Trust. Red Bandanna Project lesson books and support materials; Honor Crowther Fagan’s book for young children, “The Man in the Red Bandanna” and related high quality logo merchandise may be purchased on this website through the Red Bandanna Project Store. A curriculum for College Underclassmen will be available soon.
The net proceeds from the sale of all items through the Store will go to the Welles Remy Crowther Charitable Trust to help the Trust continue its charitable work and educational outreach. The Welles Remy Crowther Charitable Trust is recognized as a not-for-profit organization under section 501 ( c )( 3 ) of the Internal Revenue Service Code and is registered with the State of New York.
