Project Description

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.

AIM for Youth is funded by a grant supporting Racial Equity, from the Kellogg Foundation, administered by PAF.  We collaborate with partners, including The Council for Native Hawaiian Advancement and the Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs, public and private schools, local and national colleges, Halau Ku Mana Public Charter School and Hawaiian Community Assets.

“This project seeks to establish a statewide network and provide resources and mentorship opportunities for young leaders, ages 16 to 25,” — Richard Medeiros of the Pacific American Foundation, project coordinator.
