Mission: The Hero Next Door encourages students to discover someone from their community, from the past or the present, who has made a difference to the quality of life in their community - and to make a short documentary about what that person did.

Produce your own The Hero Next Door Episode
Does your school have a community service requirement? The Hero Next Door is a great tool for community building. To learn more about how producing a Hero Next Door movie can help students fulfill their community service requirement, click here. The Hero Next Door is a great tool for character building. Many think that a hero is a rock star or an athlete. Producing their own Hero Next Door episode helps young people come to realize that there are unsung heros in every community, people who have the courage or kindness to do the right thing, people who make a difference. If your high school has a community service requirement for graduation, producing an episode of The Hero Next Door could be a great way to fulfill that requirement.
