Raising Little Heroes

Nurturing compassion and social-mindedness in our young children


Raising Little Heroes aims to nurture innate altruism in our children. We seek volunteer opportunities to be of service in the community and the world as a whole. We recognize and value the importance of doing this altruistic work side-by-side with our young children, providing them the opportunity to learn first hand the impact of giving. We know that when our children experience and witness selflessness, they understand that each small contribution makes a big difference. In doing this regularly as a whole family, we show our children that this is simply part of what it means to be humane.  An important aspect of this organization is our dedication to passing on these values  to our children, helping them grow into adults who are kind, compassionate, and socially-minded.

    I LOVE this! What an amazing organization. Getting children involved in community work is so important and sets up such a great foundation for the rest of their lives. The world will be a better place because of people like you, and organizations like this! I can’t wait to see more, and to get my son involved!

  4. Always nice to learn about other organizations doing great work! Let me know if you would like to partner with Philanthropy Field Trips on a project – we would love it! http://www.philanthropyfieldtrips.org

    I have three boys. I been trying to look for a safety way and place where they can give love by helping people. Any ideas? Aurora, Co.

    • Check out our “Past Projects” page for ideas. You can also encourage them to do little things in their every day life like: helping a neighbor carry groceries, offering a sick neighbor or friend a hand with something, bringing treats or a meal to someone who just had a baby, etc. Plenty to do! Good luck!
