Dallas Young Leaders

Heroes for Children is setting out to create an environment where Teens and Young Adults have the tools and support, they need to go out into their community and become servant-oriented leaders. 


As a Young Leader Ambassador for Heroes for Children, you will be supporting our mission in the community, and most importantly the families we serve. Be an ambassador for Heroes for Children on your own time by raising awareness, fundraising, volunteering your services, collecting in-kind donations, and planning activities to raise funds in your community to support families fighting childhood cancer.
