THE MY HERO Project
MY HERO uses media, art and technology to celebrate the best of humanity. We shine a light on positive role models to help students of all ages realize their own potential to make positive change in the world.
Teachers and students around the globe participate in The MY HERO Project. For over a quarter century, MY HERO has provided hundreds of millions of students access to a safe, commercial-free online venue, where they can discover and share essays, art, audio and films that celebrate positive role models from around the world. Our non-profit educational project showcases those working for human rights, social justice, peace and environmental protection. We honor diverse women, children and men whose accomplishments in the arts, science and technology pave the way for future heroes. Teachers use MY HERO in the classroom and for distance learning to promote values, creativity, self-expression, cross-cultural understanding and an appreciation of diversity with students of all ages and grade levels. Through our website, digital storytelling tools, teacher training, salons, contests, film festival and workshops, we help students gain an understanding of their ability to follow in the footsteps of heroes.
"There is a great and perhaps decisive battle to be fought against ignorance, intolerance, and indifference."
