HERO: Empowering Black Youth & Young People Of Color
HERO empowers, educates, and equips youth to pursue a debt-free degree, pursue entrepreneurship, build strong families, and build their communities.
HERO envisions a world of thriving
families, unburdened by the stranglehold of student loan debt and oppression.
Black youth and YPOC face seemingly insurmountable odds every day between home and school. They survive violence, depression, trauma, and hopelessness. BUT there is hope! HERO’s team of therapists, nurses, social workers, and coaches; engage our youth mentally, spiritually, and therapeutically. HERO provides four (plus) engaging and enrichment programs as solutions: Campus Ready, HEROGirls, @YoungHEROsCook, and now through the pandemic we’re so proud of the recent launching of The Collective: #BlackYouth4Justice and #YoungEntrepreneursClub committed to Justice and Ownership for Black youth and YPOC! #BlackLivesMatter
While We Affirm Black Lives Matter :
Our Collective Commitment Includes Four (4) Objectives For Our Members

HERO is Cultivating Young Leaders Who Will Evoke Change With Confidence!
