Be Your Own Hero

Be Your Own Hero, Inc. 501(c)(3) is a non-profit organization whose headquarters are in Western New York. Our mission is to educate and empower young adults through experiential learning, by providing the knowledge and tools necessary to discover one’s intuitive abilities and pursue fulfilling career opportunities. Through our founders’ years of experience matching people with careers, we uncovered a prevalent need among our youth to understand the opportunities before them, based not only on what they study, but also by uncovering the demands of tomorrow’s career.

We have two team members who are on BYOH Board of Directors and work closely with other companies and the communities to bring students together with the trades. With large and informative job fairs to a traveling speaking series this non-profit organization is investing in our worlds future.
