Huinawai Youth Council : (Collective Pool) –
Huinawai started as a pilot project under Five Mountains Hawaii and the collaboration of North Hawaii Drug FreeCoalition (NHDFC) partners.
In 2012, We were asked to give youth an experience that would possibly lead into forming a youth council. NHDFC gathered and started planning a “camping trip” for our youth to attend. There we 3 criteria that were set to be the foundation of this pilot project; 1) Youth Culture 2) Hawaiian Culture 3) Youth Advisory Council. Immersion was the best way to accomplish these goals. We currently have youth representatives from Hawai’i Island that meet quarterly. PLEASE google: HUINAWAI. Watch our video and celebrate what Hawai’i Island Youth accomplish.
