Young Heroes Materials
We’re delighted to provide a set of our Young Heroes Materials for you to use in exploring the concept of heroes with your students.
We’re especially excited to let you know of our documentary film, Dream Big: The Inspiring Young Heroes of the Barron Prize. This 45-minute film profiles a diverse group of passionate young people who are making the world a better place, and includes interviews with Jane Goodall and author T.A. Barron.
