At Real Men Real Heroes, we work every day to give youth the chance to have access to culture. The work looks like providing experiences that our Heroes mentor through, experiences like museum visits, sporting events, art shows, community service and several other opportunities. We believe that it is important to instill in our Future Heroes that life has no limits, and that culture should be accessible to all, no distinction.
Real Men Real Heroes is a 3rd-8th grade youth-mentoring that is committed to helping young people change the trajectory of their lives.
CREATING IMPORTANT LIFE EVENTS
Our mentors work with our students to create new life events that are meant to crate new ways for our youth to see the world and see value in them selves. The time we spend with our students while in school and out of school is used to help provide guidance, motivation, emotional support, and role modeling. The Future Heroes Mentoring program can be a lead contributor to the building blocks for a good quality of life and strong community.
SERVING OTHERS IN A MEANINGFUL WAY
Our program creates community service opportunities so they can gain fulfilment helping others. Youth who volunteer regularly get the opportunity to develop skill sets such as problem solving which are vital to success in academics, the workplace, and their personal lives. Our Heroes utilize the community service activities to help develop and demonstrate empathy, kindness, compassion, and selflessness
CHANGE IN LIFE CIRCUMSTANCES
We have created systems that reflect the real-world showing youth that hard work and doing the right thing is usually rewarded. Our system gives at-risk youth the opportunity to provide necessities in the home and for their families. It also allows them to reward themselves with items that they desire but their family cannot afford. This method helps motivate them to keep working hard and doing the right thing all while instilling internal confidence and moral values
I don't know how you can change the world. All I know is how to change what is three feet around me"
