Role Models

Everyone needs someone to admire. Whether that person is Oprah or Einstein, our heroes set examples and blaze trails. Without role models, how would we know the great things people are capable of achieving? Role models give us the confidence we need to cross boundaries and make a difference in the lives of others.

The Internet has an abundance of sites dedicated to people who represent role models in our lives. Here are just a few to help you find someone new to admire:

  • Role Models on the Web
    Athletes, humanitarians and movie directors are but a few of the inspirational lives highlighted at this site. Read profiles of paralyzed actor Christopher Reeve, investigative journalist Diane Sawyer and others who work to make a difference.




  • Nobel e-Museum
    Learn about the lives of Nobel laureates past and present. This site allows visitors to search by name and read biographies and acceptance speeches.

  • Time 100
    This site highlights the people Time magazine considers the most influential of the last century. Each category lists 10 names and profiles of people who pushed the limits of their respective field. Read articles by today's leaders discussing the impact people like Mother Teresa and Neil Armstrong had on our everyday lives.

If you are more interested in groups collectively working to make the world better, take a virtual trip to these organizations:
  • Peace Corps
    The Peace Corps claims to be "the toughest job you'll ever love" and if you read the Volunteer Stories on this site, you'll learn how tough it really is. The material luxuries are few, but learning this organization's accomplishments might leave you inspired.

  • United Nations
    Be sure to read about the issues on the UN's agenda, including peace and human rights. The UN Works site shows the human face of the UN's accomplishments, such as a Vietnamese woman who set up a shop with the help of the UN Development Fund. UN Volunteers work to better the lives of people in 133 developing countries.

  • American Red Cross
    Read about disasters and conflicts around the world where the American Red Cross is bringing aid. The site's Help Now section breaks down various ways you can contribute to the Red Cross efforts.

  • Greenpeace International
    Activist members of this organization confront corporations and government leaders, speaking out about environmental injustice. This site's database allows visitors to track the environmental positions of many corporations.
