We’ve set a goal to impact 5,000 MORE kids through our Young Heroes Outreach Program (YHOP)… and with your help WE CAN!
Each school year, we send our educators directly into Philadelphia’s most underserved schools to teach students critical leadership skills, and empower them to use their First Amendment Rights to make positive changes in their school and community. This year our educators are teaching in twenty Title 1 schools, and more schools are waiting.
Please help us continue to change the lives of Philly Kids!
These Young Heroes made a persuasive argument for why every child deserves a safe place to play. I feel privileged to represent such an amazing school.
-Council President Darrell Clarke
Even though you are a kid, you can make great things happen, or at least you can be the spark to ignite even greater things.

At the end of each school year, the NLM's Young Heroes Outreach Program, which brings the Museum’s civic leadership curriculum directly into area schools, holds a grand celebration to showcase the Social Action Projects created by all of the participating schools. This year the celebration was a VIRTUAL event and their projects are available for viewing on this website!
