BECAUSE EVERY KID BELONGS

The FREE anti-bullying & peace-building program the world needs now.

THE HEROES IN WAITING PROMISE

Heroes In Waiting is dedicated to the proposition that “bully” is another word for a hurting kid. That empathy is inherent. Compassion is a super power. And young people are peace builders at heart. All they need to make a better world is permission. 

The Heroes In Waiting Program

Heroes In Waiting exists to ensure the mental wellness of children everywhere, and to empower youth to be peace builders in a changing world. Our FREE 12-lesson program goes beyond anti-bullying to incorporate current, trauma-informed research and best practices for meeting kid’s core needs of safety and belonging, and cultivating an environment where they can learn and grow.

“I AM” HEROES IN WAITING VIDEO CHALLENGE

We know that the effects of bullying behavior can follow youth into adulthood, where, without help and healing, they may continue to act out in ways that keep them from living life to its fullest. Our “I Am” Heroes In Waiting Video Challenge asks both kids and grownups to boldly share their personal stories as a way to break cycles and encourage change.
