Heroes & Cool Kids
WHO WE ARE: Heroes & Cool Kids, which began operating during the 1998-99 school year, is a not-for-profit organization based in New Jersey. The program utilizes the services of current and former professional athletes whose personal life experiences enable them to train high school student leaders.
WHAT WE DO: The athletes train high school students to mentor middle school students on important life skills, including sportsmanship, conflict resolution and positive lifestyle choices highlighting drug, alcohol and tobacco prevention.
WHY WE DO IT: "The goal of Heroes & Cool Kids is to promote prosocial behavior in students and to create a caring and disciplined school climate"
This program is successful because the middle school students look up to their high school mentors as role models, making a positive impact on both.
