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
We at the Heroes Foundation believe that our youth’s moral base is crumbling. Low self-esteem, apathy and materialism (“what’s in it for me”) permeate their ranks, which inevitably feed the vicious cycle of crime and violence.
The youth’s definition of “Hero” has been skewed in some cases beyond recognition – to now embrace individuals who display lawlessness, machismo, and who “get away with it”, in terms of breaking the law. We intend to be part of this Nation’s endeavours to address this concern.
The Foundation’s Ultimate Goal is to improve the youth’s self-belief, by exposing them to positive achievers and achievements, and by empowering them to make a positive difference in someone else’s life.
"To provide a source of inspiration to Trinidad and Tobago’s youth, by fostering an appreciation of Local Achievers and the Concept of Heroism"
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.
