Mission Statement

The mission of HERO USA is to enhance the quality of life for disadvantaged youth by providing outdoor sports education and training. HERO USA, Inc. will provide the opportunity for students to learn basic skills and safe practices for participating in various outdoor sports. Our programs will be offered to schools and community-based youth organizations.


HERO USA is a Columbus-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, devoted to making a difference for children in the community who are facing social, physical, and economical obstacles. We partner with community organizations and provide disadvantaged youth the opportunity to learn basic skills and safe practices for participating in various recreational sports such as kayaking, canoeing, paddle boarding, skateboarding, wake boarding, snowboarding and skiing, thus enhancing their quality of life. We do this to provide a safe, sanctioned place for kids to exercise, socialize, and develop lifelong skills.

In order to achieve our goals, HERO USA will need volunteer support from the community. We are looking for supporters who are interested in becoming involved as a volunteer mentor, teacher, or chaperone for our youth based educational sport programs. Whether you are an expert in a certain sport, or if you just want to help and learn a new sport in the process, HERO USA may be a great organization for you.
