13 young leaders assembled from around the state launched the AIM for Youth Project, a new statewide youth leadership program addressing racial inequality and engaging youth in public civic opportunities, at the Hawaii Capitol on Dec. 17, 2013.

thenapaliTHE NATIONAL PACIFIC AMERICAN LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE (NAPALI) has provided  leadership training for emerging leaders in the Pacific: (1998 – Present).

Founded by Pacific American Foundation in 1998, the National Pacific American Leadership Institute (NAPALI) educates and trains emerging Pacific American leaders to build upon traditional cultural values in understanding, harmonizing and applying leadership theories and skills necessary for achieving personal and professional growth, greater responsibilities, and a higher level of service to our communities and country. Since its inception in 1998 the 8-day intensive leadership training program has graduated 210 ‘fellows,’ whom trace their ancestry to the indigenous peoples of the Pacific islands – American Samoans, Chamorros, Fijians, Maoris, Native Hawaiians, Tongans, Tahitians, and others connected with Pacific American cultures and reside in the Pacific islands, Hawai‘i, Alaska, and the continent. NAPALI became its own nonprofit organization in 2010.
