The goal of Henrico HEROES is to promote quality mentoring programs for the youth in Henrico County Public Schools. We are passionate about providing nurturing one-to-one relationships and community support that will allow students to develop into their full potential and make informed, responsible decisions as members of their community.

It is important that effective mentoring relationships be sustained consistently for a period of time. We are looking for individuals who are interested in committing their time to grow with a student over one school year. It is because of individuals’ volunteerism that we are able to offer such opportunity to our students. If you are interested in becoming a mentor, please follow the registration instructions below and encourage your colleagues and friends to join you in this effort. To speak with someone regarding any questions that you may have, please email
