  A World Fit For Kids! > About > Kevin Sorbo: Celebrity Spokesperson

 
 


For nearly 20 years, Kevin Sorbo has earned fame and success on the large and small screens as the hero of Hercules – The Legendary Journeys, Gene Rodenberry’s Andromeda, Kull, the Conqueror and a host of other film and television roles. Off the screen this father of three children of his own has proven to be a real-life hero for the youth of our communities. As the spokesperson and past Chair of our Board of Directors, he has been actively involved in refining our vision and helping the organization grow and in 2008 he established the highly successful Kevin Sorbo Celebrity Golf Tournament, with all proceeds going to our program.
Kevin Sorbo, WFIT Spokesperson
Through his leadership role in our organization, Mr. Sorbo has become nationally known for his advocacy of afterschool programming as an effective platform for increasing the quality of life for our kids. General Colin Powell’s America’s Promise Alliance recognized Mr. Sorbo in 1999 for his diligent work in bringing the issues of youth into the national spotlight. As spokesperson for this outstanding organization for well over a decade, he has recorded nationally broadcasted Public Service Announcements promoting youth-empowering initiatives, including the Groundhog Job Shadow Day which provided workplace mentors to tens of thousands of students across the country.

In 2005, he was named to succeed Arnold Schwarzenegger as the national spokesperson for the Afterschool Alliance, a nonprofit advocacy organization working to ensure that all children have access to affordable, quality afterschool programs. As the keynote speaker for the U.S. Department of Education’s 2008 presentation of 21st Century Community Learning Center grantees, he hailed afterschool program providers as our community’s real-life heroes — organizations and individuals who are transforming the lives of youth, helping them discover the heroes in themselves.

We are deeply grateful for Kevin Sorbo’s support for our work and for his commitment to making a lasting difference in the world!
