Superheroes is a growth mindset driven entrepreneurship & leadership program for 13-17-year-old girls to unlock their potential and build true grit for a superhero life. During 4 months of program girls get to test their superpowers, boost their life skills, grow their sisterhood and be inspired by diverse role models. Most importantly, they get to make their dreams a reality by running projects they are passionate about in squads of five!
We need role models, grit, support and determination to believe we can achieve anything we set our mind to. To have more heroes to look up to, we need to create and become them. Superheroes grows and encourages a new generation of confident and committed women leaders to walk the talk. Dreams are not real. Moving forward is. That's what Superheroes does, we dare to take steps until we make the dreams happen.
We don't restrict dreams to a specific focus area. A Superhero project can vary from creating an exciting board game to starting an e-shop to campaigning for an animal rescue shelter to anything else a girl with grit is passionate about. Superheroes team will be there to provide the girls with a safe and open environment to dare, explore, test, connect and thrive. It's literally the time and place to become a hero.

Superheroes program is also a competition, every hero should come prepared for a fair battle! The program consists of 8 workshops and runs in Tallinn between October 2017 to January 2018. All sessions are held in English and are free of charge.
Superheroes workshops are held twice a month on Sundays between 11:00 - 17:00
Sessions are kicked off by inspirational speakers, followed by practical skills workshops and squad mentoring to drive the projects forward.
Think of Superheroes as your support network and yourself as the Superhero to bring about change that matters to you. You are asked to be in charge of your homework as well as be accountable to your squad. What you learn from the greatest leaders and entrepreneurs, we want you to test it out for your own big idea to thrive.
I want. I can. I will.

It was just a gradual development over the years. Last year was "All You Need Is Love." This year it's "Give Peace a Chance." Remember love. If you want to get peace, you can get it as soon as you like if we all pull together.
We were just building stuff 'cause we thought it was cool. I do remember having these specific conversations with my friends where we thought, you know, someone is gonna build this. Someone is gonna build something that makes it so that people can stay connected with their friends and their family.
