SHORT DESCRIPTION: The mission of MY HERO is to use media and technology to celebrate the best of humanity and to empower young people to realize their own potential to effect positive change in the world. Our freely accessible, not-for-profit project is supported by visitors of all ages who share stories, art, and short films on our award-winning multimedia journal and digital library. Teachers use our programs in schools, libraries, after-school workshops, and in community and media centers around the world. This presentation will introduce MY HERO's resources for teaching character education, environmental awareness, human rights and cross cultural understanding.
