Prayer Breakfast

by Permission To Start Dreaming (PTSD) Foundation

A Soldier’s Heart // 9th Annual Prayer Breakfast

We invite you to join us on September 13 at the most anticipated event of the year in Gig Harbor. Doors open at 7 am at Chapel Hill Presbyterian Church in Gig Harbor. Join us as we gather for an uplifting morning of prayer, testimony, and a delicious catered breakfast. Experience this special event as we see how God is working in the lives of our soldiers as they continue to serve their country and communities.

When a warrior lays down his arms, he or she continues to carry the burden of memory, often related to combat trauma. Memories that are often too painful and too heavy to bear alone. The Prayer Breakfast was created to provide the civilian community with the privilege of sharing the burden. The annual event offers an illuminating morning to witness the stories of overcoming adversity and the determination to overcome their battles. Every soldier has a story. Join us as our community listens to how our veterans have transitioned from defending our country to preparing for their future with a renewed sense of hope and healing.

The Permission to Start Dreaming Foundation’s most anticipated event of the year is our annual prayer breakfast. Give the one who has served this country a stage to share his heart and transformative journey as a warrior; the result is standing room only. The 9th annual event will be held at a new location this year with limited seating, so don’t delay purchasing your tickets when they go on sale this spring.

Boy Scouts of America, Aloha Council

by Boy Scouts of America, Aloha Council

Boy Scouts of America chartered the Honolulu-based Aloha Council to deliver the 109-year-old organization’s suite of programs to young people in Hawaii and the Pacific. Our mission is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetime by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.  The Aloha Council serves nearly 11,000 young people through four programs: Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA, Venturing, and Exploring.

Scouting fills the need for a holistic youth development program in our community. Parents and children are faced with an assortment of activities from which to choose and these often focus on a single aspect of a child’s development. As a comprehensive program, Scouting helps children develop the attitudes, behaviors, and skill sets to prepare for academic, career, and life success.

Last fall, Scouting began admitting girls to Cub Scouts and nearly 400 girls joined in the first few months. We increased the number of Cub Scouts who went camping and increased the number of program leaders who received training. In 2019, we plan to grow the number of youths participating in our programs.

NALU Studies Maui Program for High-Risk Youth

by Pacific American Foundation is the fiscal sponsor NALU Studies Education Center

The NALU Studies Education Center is requesting 25K in funding to support the development of the NALU Studies Maui program, which will result in redirecting Maui's high risk, adjudicated, high school youth to see themselves as responsible environmental leaders and education as a valuable resource. NALU Maui youth will come to understand advanced scientific concepts and cultural protocols by working directly with scientist mentors and cultural practitioners in hands-on, experiential education approaches that address real world environmental issues.  We have been approached by the Honorable Judge Mark Browning of the Hawaii Family Court and Circuit Court. NALU Maui students will receive both high school and college credit so that they can graduate and not drop out and they will be trained to mentor peers and at-risk middle school youth to help them make healthy responsible decisions.  NALU Studies synergizes science, community service, and education, engaging at-risk, under-represented youth through a Hawaiian cultural contextual lens. Through NALU Studies' two components, consisting of the NALU Nature program that connects youth with engaging outdoor activities, and the rigorous NALU Academic program, that consists of labs, field work, a final exam, and a public presentation, we will be able to transform the lives of Maui high-risk youth to see themselves as responsible leaders taking action in support of their communities and the environment.

Wood Chipper to consolidate wastes from removal of invasive trees and plants

by MA'ANA - MAOLI AQUACULTURE & AGRICULTURE NATIVE ASSISTANCE

 Invasive plants, especially mangroves, have had a serious negative impact on the environment and usefulness of Hawaiian fish ponds. Ualapu'e fish pond is a registered historic site, but has suffered serious damage from storms, mangroves, and neglect. MA'ANA has obtained permits to restore this pond, once famous for production of fish and clams, by removing the mangroves and repairing the fish pond rock walls that were knocked down by a tidal wave. Volunteers have already begun to help make repairs and remove invasive plants. 

      MA'ANA is asking for donations either in the form of cash or useable equipment, specifically a commercial size wood chipper. Some of the wood can be chipped and sold to help subsidise labor costs to repair the fish pond.  Other plants and trees will be chipped to reduce impact at the landfill. Please consider donating to this cause. 

Mahalo,

MA'ANA Board of Directors

UNSTOPPABLE Music Empowerment Program

by FREE2LUV INC

The effects of low self-esteem in children — depression, hostility/acting out, and poor social skills — are devastating. Underserved youth are particularly vulnerable. In response to this issue, Free2Luv® has created UNSTOPPABLE, an interactive, music-based empowerment program serving at-risk youth, designed to engage, enlighten, and empower youth to celebrate their own individuality and uniqueness.

Through popular music and powerful storytelling, we address topics pertinent to today’s youth — self-acceptance, anxiety, depression, overcoming adversity, bullying, the importance of kindness, racism, self-esteem, and goal development — all from a peer perspective. 

Teen performers stress to the students that they are not alone, that being different and unique is a strength, and that they too can overcome adversity. Our goal is to ignite a spark in every participant to inspire positive choices, and increased feelings of support and belonging.

Free2BeME Project: Journeys of Self-Discovery

by FREE2LUV INC

In response to the bullying and youth suicide crisis that affects such a large number of youth each day, Free2Luv created the Free2BeME Project, an art-driven empowerment workshop geared toward meeting the needs of at-risk youth.

The Free2BeME Project creates a safe space for youth to express themselves creatively, develop self-esteem, foster teamwork, communication, and leadership skills - all while becoming more responsible and active stewards of their community.

Self-esteem in youth is at an all-time low, over 160,000 students are staying home from school every day due to bullying, and funds for the arts has been cut over 80% in U.S. public schools. We need to actively address these issues by offering our empowerment programming free-of-charge to underserved communities, affording them the opportunity to creatively express themselves through the power of the arts.
