Together, we can create a world where heroism is not confined to fiction but becomes a reality in the lives of countless changemakers.
With a little effort and creativity, you can help your kids fall in love with reading and set them on a path to a lifetime of learning and adventure.
Young children often mistake celebrity for heroism, but true heroism is different. Every hero discovers that they have something deep inside themselves, which is inspiring for all around them.
Each year, the Barron Prize awards outstanding young people whose actions serve as an inspirational example of the power we all have to make a difference in the world.
No matter what your goals are, here are the things you can do to stay focused and achieve dreams.
How can we empower young people? Young minds are impressionable and can be empowered through these simple methods.
I invite you to take a moment to read through this year’s list of marvelous, accomplished young people, to visit their project sites, and learn more about them!
Encouraging young people to harness their energy in the form of volunteering is one of the most valuable actions you can take toward creating a better future for your children, with your children.
I believe passionately in the power that young people have to change the narrative of the future, and the most powerful step adults can make towards a better tomorrow is to foster that hope and drive in our young people.
