Description 1 online resource (streaming video file)
Summary Everyday Heroes explores the rewards and the potential difficulties, on both a personal and program level, of national and community service and of service-learning. It provides a stimulating launching-point for discussion about civic engagement and youth leadership development. Issues of race and diversity permeate every scene, with the impassioned voices of the service providers "talking across differences." Everyday Heroes is an excellent resource for use in the areas of service-learning, civic engagement, race and diversity, communicating common ground, student affairs and youth development, among others. For program directors in the service community or anyone engaged in youth leadership and development, Everyday Heroes is an invaluable tool that can be used for staff, board and member orientation and training, community outreach and organizing, member recruitment, fund-raising, and race and diversity training. "Anyone who thinks America's youth is in bad shape should see this film; it will give them faith for the future of this nation. This wonderful film should find a home in all libraries and may help encourage viewers to consider volunteering to help America's children succeed." - Danna Bell-Russell, Library of Congress
