Project Hawai'i, Inc. is a nonprofit organization that offers an Award Winning Teen Mentoring Summer Camp program. Our teen mentoring program provides teens with the opportunity to expand their potential and gain leadership skills while enhancing the lives of homeless children. Creating future leaders by allowing the teens to take charge of their own educational growth by tackling real world problems. We enroll teens between the ages of 14-17 for a maximum of 24 per year.
Our camp provides the poverty stricken children with exciting and interactive encounters that will open up the world around them, and provide for better future opportunities. All campers will have hands on experiences that will enhance their appreciation for, and understanding of their environment, community and Hawaiian culture. We support a well rounded educational program that gives these children the hope they deserve! Furthermore, our camp is designed to allow the children to escape their everyday troubles in a safe and serene environment. We provide them with basic life skills to help them keep clean and healthy, as well as introduce them to various arts, music, and other activities to keep their minds focused on success. These keiki WILL gain self-esteem beyond comparison and be ready to face their world once they return home. Since our program is a certified USDA Summer Nutrition program, we adhere to a strict healthy meal plan. We provide the children with 3 nutritious meals and 2 healthy snacks daily. We believe the children of today will determine our tomorrow. We instill healthy habits to help them grow and escape poverty.
Our camp is offered free of charge to children between the ages of 3-7 years of age. Project Hawai'i truly proves these precious children with the hope of a better tomorrow, pride in being prepared for school and the social skills to make new friendships. Our agency is able to stay on its mission through the community support and involvement. As an agency run 100% by volunteers and solely supported by public donations, we rely on the generosity of great people like YOU! There are many ways to be involved.

About Our Camp Buddies
Our children live under various living conditions including cars, along the beaches in tents and substandard structures. As well over the years our agency has been able to help many of our clients get into transitional housing or other low-income residential housing situations. Still yet, most of our children live in very poverty stricken situations without running water, electricity or even a warm bed and blanket. Learn more....
