Project H.E.R.O.I.S.M. was developed to not only teach children the significance of serving their communities through classic and modern stories and follow-up discussions, but also to give them opportunities to put what they have learned into action through projects that benefit the communities in which they live. Best of all, they get to wear a cape while demonstrating the true tenets of heroism - H.elp E.mpower R.espond O.rganize I.nspire S.erve M.obilize.
Schools, camps, clubs, and teams benefit from the positive PR with those in their community.
Local organizations (ex. shelters, humane societies, hospitals) benefit as the recipients of the children's projects (ex.sandwiches, bones, blankets).
