Project Hawaii Teen Mentoring Program

Welcome to our Award Winning Teen Mentoring Program

Aloha, Welcome to our teen mentoring program. This is a 3-fold program, providing community service, mentoring and leadership programs, cultural learning and of course Hawaiian adventures.

We welcome you to join our journey with this award winning program we provide to the homeless and poverty stricken teens. Our Teen Mentoring program helps these youth learn the proper life and social skills as well as leadership and guidance skills to help them succeed, and become leaders of their own choices.

Our program is truly unique, as we tailor the program for each teen as an individual. We are able to work one on one and create individual goals for success! 

Project Hawai'i Summer Camp-Help Homeless Keiki

Project Hawai’i, Inc. Teen Mentoring Program is designed to allow the teens enrolled in High School who have  graduated from a younger camper to one with more responsibility. This program offers workshops that teach them to take leadership of themselves while helping the Jr. Leaders develop their skills. Our teen mentors are typically those who have been with us since they were younger and have learned the importance of education and learning to follow instructions. This is an EARNED PRIVILEGE

Without our programs, most homeless teens are already dropped out of school. They are typically in the justice system, living in unsafe environments and very dysfunctional.

With your sponsorship and support this program can assist our teens to graduate and move on to higher education or sustainable employment.

We have a 90% success rate with our teens who graduate with us

The cost to sponsor a Teen Mentor per session is $1,600.00 .. there are 2 sessions per summer camp.

We are seeking companies that would like to make a commitment to sponsor this program for another 3 years

I am proud to say that because of Project Hawai'i Teen Mentoring Summer Camp, I am a true mentor! I can't thanks this program and the dedicated staff enough for giving me the skills and self confidence to truly be the leader I always wanted to be. I attend camp a few years ago as a freshman. The entire group that year was 13-14 years old. We were told that was sort of rare, being that we are all either going to be or were freshmen. But as Magin always says, "Everything happens for a reason and the universe gives us exactly what we need, when we need it". Something that is hard to even comprehend, but this woman truly lives in a world of hope and dreams. She is always there for what the teens need, and beyond belief when it comes to providing for these homeless children we work alongside all summer long.
I wasn't sure what this program would provide for me, but I knew I needed to be my own person in an environment that was service driven. I am so glad that I took the steps to find this awesome organization and raised the extra money my parents wouldn't provide for me.
I was asked to share a story, but there are so many wonderful things to share, I decided just to give a recommendation. Enroll, go to this program, make it part of your life journey and tell your own stories. I hope to return someday and give back even more!


Being part of this years Project Hawai'i Summer Camp as jr. leader has changed my life. I have spent most of my life being homeless, or living with different relatives here and there. Stability is not something I know. However, being part of this life changing experience has truly touched my life. This is actually my second year, and was so grateful for the opportunity to continue on my path to ending the cycle of poverty and homelessness for myself.
What Magin and Cliff teach at this camp, and throughout the year, is that we are in control of our outcome. We might not know what is going to happen to day, or where we will live tomorrow, but we do have control of what we learn, what we experience and who we can become.
Without Project Hawai'i, I would not have the self-esteem or even the will to stay in school to succeed. Their teen mentoring and jr. leader program provides us with so much to hold on to as we learn and grow into young adults. Project Hawai'i provided me this opportunity as well as all my back to school needs. They even allow the teens to shop for their own clothing and shoes. Giving us the joy of picking out our own outfit, our style, our perfect size and color. yes, that does make a difference.
Thank you to all those who make this possible. I know that the teens who participate have a tuition that helps to cover the cost for me to attend. I can't thank them enough. And the teens who truly care about me, and my future, more thanks than I can give.


I was one of the lucky teens to have been invited to attend the teen mentoring summer camp program. This experience was more than I could have ever imagined. Not only would my family ever be able to afford such an experience for me, I was so blessed to have everything I needed sponsored. Once I finished the program, the memories of what made this so wonderful still remain in my daily thoughts. I have learned so much from this camp. So much from my experience as I was able to work with teens who were there to help me grow and learn.
I am proud to say that I am the first person in my family ever to have graduated from high school, and I owe that to Project Hawai'i, Inc., for always being there for me and my family.
I am so grateful that Magin and Cliff decided to open this camp up to teens who are homeless and struggling in life, not just for the little one's. My life is so much better because of this experience.
I am now applying for college and hold a full-time job. My life is on the right track and I will succeed.
Thank you for taking the time to read my review and I hope that this helps someone else in the future find the hope that I have found with Project Hawai'i.
