“The Heroes/Los Héroes is AMAZING. My kids enjoy the program and use the conflict resolution strategies during class.”

The Heroes / Los Héroes

Grades K-2nd | 15-25 Students  |  5  One-Hour, English-Spanish Bilingual Sessions (Including a Follow-Up)

In this interactive, bilingual performance Teaching Artists use role-play, puppetry, song, movement and games to teach a 4-step conflict resolution process to youth.  Our main character, Sam the Salamander, sets off on a journey from Barton Springs to Costa Rica all the way to Mount Kilimanjaro to discover the “Four Steps to Peace.”  Students are invited to go on the adventure so they can help Sam learn what it really means to be a Hero
