Who are Keiki Heroes Ambassadors?

Keiki Heroes Ambassadors are older keiki (6th – 12th grade) who have the Keiki Heroes “super powers.” They model and teach younger keiki how to exercise their own super powers like washing their hands properly, wearing a mask the right way, respecting the bubble with others, etc.

They help to fulfill the Keiki Heroes’ mission:

  • Educate and empower keiki to adopt healthy practices that protect themselves and adults who care for them to reduce spread of COVID-19.

They keep in mind the Keiki Heroes values:

  • Kindness and compassion, fun, positive (“do” rather than “don’t do”)
  • The feelings that they help younger keiki have are optimism and courage

What do Keiki Heroes Ambassadors do?

Write, draw, create videos, poems, songs, etc. about…

  • Kai, Hōkū, Ola, and Laulima
  • Original messages that are important for Keiki Heroes to share
  • What we do to stay healthy and why
  • Who they care about and think about protecting
  • What’s changed for them this school year and what’s the same
  • What are some things they do to feel good (especially when they are worried or stressed)

Examples of Keiki Heroes Ambassadors:

7th grade class at St. Joseph school is currently brainstorming ideas to share the messages and ideas of Keiki Heroes through social media. They will be working on sharing content with #keikiheroes and #handwashingchallenge (a challenge to create hand washing dance videos).
