Welcome to Mau'i Jr. Leaders
Welcome to Mau'i Jr. Leader program. We are so excited to bring this award winning program to the island of Mau'i and help the homeless keiki succeed. Thanks in part to the Shane Victorino Foundation, we are able to expand our services and outreach to the island children year round with a focus on education.
This camp is designed to allow our youth the opportunity to learn and grow in a safe and nurturing environment while school is out. Our program will provide an educational and community service based learning program that allows the leaders the opportunity to earn service hours and certificates.
This is an all inclusive camp and will provide each jr. leader with all their needed supplies from basic hygiene, new outfits, all meals and snacks, along with all activities, accommodations and transportation.
Our 9 day program will provide a wide array of leadership and life skills workshops along with cultural activities and island exploration.
This program was developed 6 years ago as a pilot program on Big Island funded by HPE Drive for Success award. Since then we have seen our jr leaders excel in school, participate in school based sports that have lead to scholarship opportunities and graduation!!
We chose to start with the most vulnerable ages as we expand to Mau'i. This age group has so many life changing challenges and we will be preparing them to become leaders of self and learn how to manage their emotions, fears and doubts as they navigate through their middle school experiences.
We have a wide variety of opportunities open for those who wish to make a difference in the lives of our youth.
Our program is run 100% by volunteers!!
We also offer sponsorship opportunities that will allow our camp to run free of charge for years to come. You make the difference in their lives and change their world. Your investment in their lives now will help shape their future and allow them to escape the cycle of poverty in which they were born.
You can be a part of the Project Hawai’i, Inc. Summer Camp success!
We hold their hearts in our hands, but YOU can change their world!
Full Sponsorship per Jr. Leader is $2,800.
Workshops: Leadership & Self Development
Our jr. leaders will be attending workshops throughout their program to help them develop healthy life habits, self care and self confidence. Each workshop is a 3 hour course and each comes with a certification of completion.
