We work and liaise within the education sector to promote positive citizenship and social responsibility among young people.
One of the programmes we organise and co-ordinate is the ‘Heroes Day Programme’ in schools across the UK. One of our core beliefs is that too many young people idolise, and are influenced by, celebrities and people from reality TV programmes. (It is important to note that some celebrities do, and indeed have done inspirational things!).
The ‘Heroes Day Programme’ recognises and champions the inspirational people in our communities. It is our aim to teach young people the key differences between celebrity and heroism, promoting the importance of hard work, determination, grit and resilience. The Programme provides an opportunity for young people to learn about the truly inspirational people of the past and also the anonymous inspirational people of the present, within our local communities.
In today’s society, it is also important that young people learn about the values and diversity that makes Great Britain great!
