• The Genius

    Within

    This program was created with the understanding that children will learn and perform best in environments where they feel both supported and celebrated. We believe that every child brings a multitude of talents and abilities to the learning table, and it is our goal to help them realize and harness those talents and abilities. We make a conscious choice to focus on each child’s potential instead of focusing on their deficits. It is through this framework that a child’s excitement for and interest in learning will be sparked, and every facet of that child’s academic life will be positively influenced.

  • Enrichment

    Each year, we take a group of inner-city youth on a series of enrichment trips that are designed to provide them with an opportunity for exploration and engagement with activities, events, people, and places that they would not normally be exposed to. The purpose of this program is to broaden each child’s understanding of the world and the possibilities that exist for them. Research has proven that much of what we know has to do with what we are exposed to and that knowledge is reinforced through tangible experiences. Our students have had the opportunity to explore places like Washington, DC, the Rocky Mountains, the Grand Canyon, New York, Niagara Falls, and Mammoth Cave, to name a few. Stay tuned for details on the next exciting adventure!

    “Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.” ~Albert Einstein~
    Imagination, by its very nature, is defined by one’s ability to see beyond what is evident and to have vision for what is yet to materialize. It is the underpinning of all innovation, and it is the means through which we progress beyond our current state of being. Imagination takes us to places that we have not yet been. It allows us to see things that we have not yet seen. Even more importantly, it allows us to create the future.

This is Heroes' Alliance

Welcome

 The goal of Heroes’ Alliance is to build a community of resourced and empowered individuals who see and use education as a path to success. We accomplish this through a variety of avenues with a foundational understanding that the destiny of our city and its residents is in the collective hands of those who call Detroit home.

 We hope that something on our site inspires you to get involved or stay involved and help make a meaningful impact that will resonate for generations
to come!

A Word from the Director

 I would first like to extend a most heartfelt “Thank You” to all of those who have supported Heroes’ Alliance as we have grown and extended our reach over the years. Those, who have been a part of the massive grassroots effort to reclaim the city of Detroit, know that we as a community are on the cusp of something great. It is going to take a concerted effort by the leaders, residents and supporters of our great 

city to ensure that our children not only participate in the new wave of the future, but that they become the leaders who help to build that future. It is going to take a heroic effort on our part, but the city of Detroit is well adept at rising to such a challenge. We all play our part, and it is when we come together as One village with One goal and One voice that we will experience the change that we envision.

 I would like to offer a word of encouragement to us all to continue fighting for our community and for our children. The foundation that we lay today can either strengthen or weaken what our children will build tomorrow. So let’s lay a strong foundation, and never forget that the best way to predict the future is to build it ourselves.

 Anika Smith- Director of Programs
