Here at Youth with a Mission Kauai we focus on both changing the community around us and the nations abroad. As a missional community we believe that we are called to make disciples locally and internationally! As a base we do our best to remain aware of the changing needs here on our home-island. Both staff and students spend time ministering in the community on a weekly basis. This includes time spent partnering with the local church, community development organizations, and within the local Hawaiian community.
Our community outreaches take on a variety of forms depending on the evolving needs of the local people. Volunteering with the domestic violence shelter, youth mentorship programs, and churches around the island are just a few ways we are serving the people on the Garden Island. Staff and students dive into different types of evangelism, homeless ministries, and youth outreaches. Each summer we are proud to partner with Kukulu Kumuhana O’ Anahola’s Movie Night - a community event infusing hope into a beautiful community. The event was started in response to multiple years of teen suicide in the area.
