MY HERO Newsletter Updates for Summer 2017


We invite you to visit the newly redesigned MY HERO website. We are working to make our archive easier to explore and accessible to mobile devices. 

Check out our new Calendar to find hero birthdays, special events. Register to use the new MY HERO toolkit and be sure to sign the Guestbook.  

Since 1995, MY HERO has inspired, from users like you, what is now the world's largest archive of hero stories. Our library reaches more than 100 million people, including underserved communities, where educational outreach is challenging. 

Teachers and students in 197 countries depend on MY HERO to enrich their classrooms and after school programs with our rich online library, lesson plans, tutorials and activity guides. Teachers can use online tools to create playlists of MY HERO content for their students to explore. MY HERO's digital toolkit allows students to create and publish web pages, music, art and short films that honor their personal heroes.

  We would love to hear your story. Use your mobile device to take a picture of your hero in action and post it to our guestbook.
