How Heroic Youth Got Started
Since 2004 they had been involved in planning and running the Knight’s Summit (formerly Knights of Freedom). They took over that summit in 2007 and it evolved and grew into the Mastering Knighthood program. Eventually it became clear that there was a need for a broader base of programs to share the Hero message with both boys and girls and Heroic Youth was founded.

King Richard and Queen Emily continue to run the Mastering Knighthood division of Heroic Youth and were joined in 2013 by Deborah and Jason Raymond who are over the Crowned With Virtue division. To read King Jason and Queen Deborah’s bio, please click here.
Heroic Youth is designed to help mentor youth to rise up and become the heroes of today. We do this through our Summit programs which offer training in leadership, public virtue, and service. Our two divisions, Mastering Knighthood for the boys, and Crowned With Virtue for the girls, are each designed to reach boys and girls with the language and environment that best speaks to their gender. Through our Christ-centered teachings, we truly believe that every young man and young woman has the ability to be truly great.
