Be a HERO for a Young Person today.

The HEROES mentoring program is led by the DU Volunteer Center at the Lettinga Campus with students from the Caledonia middle schools. 

  • Student mentors help children develop their competence and character through an ongoing, structured relationship.
  • You'll be a positive role model for your student, encouraging optimistic attitudes about school, positive self-esteem and improved relationships with adults and peers.. 
  • Through the HEROES program, you'll also develop your own leadership, character and professional growth .
