Seed Funding For The Next Generation Of Heroes

Our mission is to invest in youth who are uniquely positioned to change the world.

The superheroes of tomorrow are here today
With the support of folks like yourself, we provide extraordinary youth with seed funding for their out-of-the-box solutions to issues they care about.
We Are Sidekicks

These extraordinary young people are Cosmic Heroes

Lupe Vieyra 2015
Reduced the dropout rate in her school district by building an innovative peer-to-peer mentorship program.
Emily Carson 2014
Saved the social studies requirement in her school district through her own civic activism.
Mikala Davis 2014

How it Works
A person secretly nominates a student. Students do not learn of their nominations.
A committee, known as the Hero Development Bureau, thoroughly vets every nominee. Finalists are reviewed by our Advisory Board.
The Cosmic Hero is surprised at their school with a celebration of superhero proportions.
The Cosmic Hero gains access to seed funding for a project to make the world a better place — and a network of sidekicks to help.
