Everyone needs someone to look up. Children have their "hero" whom they admire in sports, movies and TV, but their heroes are so out of reach. The Tulare Parks and Recreation Department believes our youth can have heroes right here in Tulare. Someone they can reach out to and touch. Heroes from our own neighborhoods who represent the values we want youth to emulate.

Tulare's "Teen Heroes" represent the City of Tulare for one year wearing distinctive forest green City of Tulare "Teen Hero" t-shirts while they visit youth activities and schools to pass on the important message to "Step Up to Health" living a healthy lifestyle and reaching for your dreams. Youth throughout Tulare have an opportunity to meet these students, visit and "play" with them, and take with them the inspiration of being proud of who you are.
