Future Heroes
Be your own hero
We are a sisterhood without borders

Future Heroes is a growth mindset-driven leadership & entrepreneurship program for girls aged 13 -17 to unlock their potential and create positive impact in the world
We all need role models, courage, support and determination to believe we can achieve anything we set our mind and heart to. It takes guts to stand alone, speak up and make great change happen. Future Heroes dares to be real and do things differently.To have more daring and diverse heroes to look up to, we've created an open environment for a driven community of girls with a passion to grow, work together and solve problems.
Welcome to a personal growth and change program to unlock your potential. During 4 months and 7 skills & mindset workshops, girls get to test their strengths, boost their life skills, grow their sisterhood and be inspired by diverse role models. Most importantly, dreams are made a reality by running projects that girls are most passionate about in teams of five, supported by mentors. Consider it a support network to jump-start your future.
We want every business or social action that's created during the program to have positive impact on the society. Be it a start-up that works towards mental well-being. Be it a social action project with a focus on better education or climate action. You get to decide what creates the most meaningful change in the future and we'll make sure to be your sisterhood without borders. It's literally the time and place to become a hero.
Sustainable by Nature
We are determined to be sustainable in the way we operate, the way we think, act, celebrate success, encourage and empower the next generation of heroes.
Diverse at Heart
Our speakers, coaches and mentors are men and women from different countries, age groups, mindset, mission, cultural background and walks of life.
Global in Vision
Our first language is English. We are a sisterhood without borders in action. Open and reaching out to make growth and change accessible, one girl with a cause at the time.
