MEET THE TEAM THAT MAKES IT HAPPEN
You may know us as Real Men Real Heroes. We’ve served more than 5,000 kids and issued $1.6 million in scholarships since our founding in 2008. We’re proud of what we’ve accomplished through youth mentorship, but want to do more. That includes broadening our vision to include girls. That led to our name change: Heroes Academy.
Today, our nonprofit 501(C)(3) serves kids from 3rd through 8th grades in the USD 259 school district. Currently, we’re in six schools. We help kids find purpose through service to others, access to meaningful life events and changes in their life circumstances.
