YB Kauai County Community Advisory Board Members are:
During the 100 plus years we have been in business, Young Brothers (YB) has supported numerous community needs over the years. We want to strengthen Young Brothers' community gift giving commitment by providing a more formal way of contributing. Therefore, Young Brothers has established Community Advisory Boards (CAB) for the counties of Hawaii, Kauai and Maui. Leading citizens have been asked to volunteer on the CABs to give us feedback on their communities. Since the program's inception in 2001, Young Brothers contributed a total of nearly $889,000 to approximately 920 non-profit organizations throughout the state of Hawaii through this gift-giving program.
Charitable organizations must be designated 501(c)3 by the Internal Revenue Service. Projects eligible for grants are in the categories of health, education, civic and community services, youth activities, cultural enrichment, environment and special community projects.

Our mission is to provide the best inter-island freight handling and transportation services, through our involved, dedicated, and skilled people, delivering excellent customer service, in order to achieve long-term profitability and success.
In 1900, Herbert, William and Jack Young arrived in Honolulu to start a "bumboat" business called Young Brothers. Thirteen years later the firm was incorporated as Young Brothers, Limited, and expanded to provide ocean towing, rescue service and barge transportation between the islands. It got its start by providing ocean transportation services between Oahu and Molokai. Later, to separate harbor operations and charter activities from Young Brothers' interisland freight operations, Hawaiian Tug & Barge was formed as a sister company.
In 1999, Saltchuk Resources, Inc. of Seattle, Washington, the parent company of Foss Maritime, acquired Young Brothers and selected assets of Hawaiian Tug & Barge. In 2013 Hawaiian Tug & Barge was rebranded, and incorporated into the Foss Maritime fleet, while Young Brothers remains a wholly own subsidiary of Foss.
For more than a century, Young Brothers has grown to become Hawaii's foremost inter-island freight handling and transportation company. With its involved, dedicated and skilled people and full fleet of barges, tugs, and shoreside equipment, it offers fast, frequent and reliable service to the ports of Nawiliwili on Kauai, Kahului on Maui, Kaunakakai on Molokai, Kaumalapau on Lanai, Honolulu on Oahu, and Hilo and Kawaihae on the Island of Hawaii.

Girl Scouts of Hawai`i is grateful for the support from Young Brothers Kauai for our After School Leadership Program (ASLP). The generosity of Young Brothers allows Girl Scouts to deliver this unique leadership experience to girls in Title 1 schools and in under-resourced areas across Kaua`i. ASLP removes barriers to participation in Girl Scouting, such as economic strife, family and parental situations, and transportation challenges. Girls who participate in our after school programs develop strong values, social conscience, and conviction about their own potential and self-worth, as well as craft positive relationships with themselves and their communities. We thank Young Brothers for helping us reach out to more girls and provide a safe, challenging, and nurturing space to learn and grow for the Kaua`i girls that need it most!
