Last year, we had the amazing opportunity to offer community Hawaiian language classes in our beloved Waialua. To celebrate mahina ‘ōlelo Hawai’i, we will be offering 4 FREE language classes again at the Waialua Courthouse. Please email us if you have any questions. All levels and learners welcome. #mahinaolelohawaii #eolakaolelohawaii #olelohawaii #waialua #haleiwatown The Hawaii Youth Commission is looking for diverse youth and young adults ages 14 to 24 to serve as Youth Commissioners. The Youth Commission will advise the Governor and Legislature on the effects of legislative policies, programs and budgets concerning the youth of the state.⠀
⠀
Youth Commissioners will be provided training and opportunities to develop communication and leadership skills while learning about legislation and how to provide youth perspectives and recommendations on policy agenda. Additionally, opportunities will be provided to participate in government and civic matters and in collaborative efforts with other youth programs, boards, community organizations, and stakeholders on youth related issues.⠀
⠀
The 15 members of the Commission will be appointed by the Governor, the Senate President and the Speaker of the House. Members must include representation from each county and at least one member who has received youth services.⠀
⠀
Hawaii Youth Services Network has been asked to assist in the recruitment of youth for the Commission. If you know of youth who would be interested in serving on the Commission – especially those who have experience with youth issues such as homelessness, crime, child abuse and substance abuse – please contact Lynn Robinson-Onderko at l.robinson-onderko@capitol.hawaii.gov for next steps on the application process. Deadline to apply: February 14, 2020.
