The Treehouse HEROES (Helping Everyone Receive Our Everyday Stories) Youth Leadership Program is a membership-based program for young people impacted by foster care and adoption.
HEROES is designed to offer opportunities civic engagement, character growth, and leadership development, and is a growing and evolving catalyst for teen engagement in the Re-Envisioning Foster Care in America Movement.
Our three-fold mission — to change, to teach, and to build community — is accomplished through an intergenerational partnership where the voices of young people are included, and respected. Through the arts, adventure, and advocacy we encourage these kids to be leaders in their own lives, the lives of their peers and families, and ultimately their communities.
What about transportation and food?
Sharing a meal together is one of the special parts of the HEROES program that we all enjoy. We keep everyone fed and happy! We can also assist in coordinating/providing transportation. Through the use of carpools and volunteers, we hope to never have to turn anyone away because of transportation.
