Calling All Kids! Community Action Heroes Needed

Kids have an outstanding opportunity to make a big difference this summer.  To start, they can visit and click on “Action Heroes Needed.”  Then, they can pick a cause, choose from a multitude of simple, fun project ideas (or create their own) and report on it for a chance to be selected for one of several $500 micro grants. The first 2,000 kids or teens to report on their projects will be sent a special gift from Hasbro and generationOn, is a global youth service movement that gives kids the opportunity to see issues in their communities and the tools and resources they need to respond and become part of the solution.

GenerationOn is the youth division of HandsOn Network, and the Volunteer Center (an affiliate of HON) has teamed up with GenerationOn and Hasbro to give kids, teens and families the opportunity to be heroes this summer.

The Community Action Heroes campaign kicked off July 2nd and continues throughout the entire summer.

“What a wonderful way for kids to keep busy, have fun and do good this summer,” says Janet Sharma, executive director of the Volunteer Center.  “It’s a chance for families to come together an help others at the same time, don’t let the summer just pass by.  Inspire your family to be heroes.”
