Project Holomua Youth Program

Project Holomua is an in-school, after-school and intersession youth program that focuses on positive youth development. The overall goal of Project Holomua is to encourage our youth to learn about themselves, their family, Hawaiian history, their ahupua’a (land division) and moku (land district). In return, this helps engage and create bonds between our youth and the people that make up their community.  Our youth participate in various community-based service-learning projects.  This helps foster a deeper understanding and respect for ʻohana, ʻāina, community, culture, and the environment; all the while honing their skills to achieve higher education, or trade skills through passion, hard work and perseverance.

 

‘Umeke ‘Ai …. Get Rooted and Thrive

Project Holomua is proud to present the first of a series of workbooks and hands on activities geared towards keiki and ʻohana of all ages. Our series, “Ka ʻUmeke ʻAi: Get Rooted & Thrive” speaks to the resiliency of us as a community. Regardless of the challenges around us especially during these unprecedented times, our community continues to thrive.
Like the stones of a pā pohaku along side a loʻi kalo, our foundation is strong and sturdy. In it holds the knowledge of ourselves, our family values, and our ʻāina that we come from. We hope that through these activities and lessons, your ʻohana becomes more cognizant of your sense of belonging, kuleana and aloha to our ʻāina, community and ka pae ʻāina o Hawaiʻi.
