What is the Heroes Foundation?
The Heroes Foundation (HF) is a registered non-profit organization that was established in October 2002 to service the needs of youth in Trinidad & Tobago.
The Foundation’s reason for existence is to nurture the Next Generation of Heroes. This is achieved primarily through our creation and promotion of mentorship activities, by the youth and for the youth. It is our mission to ensure that the young people we work with are exposed to opportunities where they may practice acts of selflessness, are exposed to mentorship activities, and sometimes, are themselves mentored.
This mission has afforded the Foundation direct access to the people’s views on leadership, community and responsibility, which has resulted in a startling realization – that now, more than ever before, this Country Needs Heroes.
It is universally accepted that youth need positive role models and the opportunity to participate in improving their own communities. This enables them to develop the confidence and life skills necessary to become leaders and mentors to the next generation.
