At the National Liberty Museum, we empower young heroes to identify and investigate social issues to create change and become Heroes of liberty! And now, for the first time ever, we’re going to help you become a #HeroAtHome!
So, do you want to be a Hero? Then it’s time for training! There are 4 subjects in the Hero Training Program: Character Traits, First Amendment Rights, Hero Stories, and Social Issues. There are activities to complete in each of these four subjects.
Click on the banners below to take this journey to becoming a hero. If you enjoy these activities, learn more about our Young Heroes Outreach Program (YHOP) here. If you’re a teacher, learn how you can apply to partner with YHOP to support Young Heroes at your own school!
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!
