Event Details

Please join us for this FREE, fun filled conference with current and former foster youth from Oahu, Maui, Kauai and Hawaii Island in attendance. Activities for the day will revolve around the theme, “Hiki Nō”, meaning “Can do”. Most of the talks and activities will be created and delivered by foster youth alumni.  Here is a sample of the day’s offerings:

Youth/Young People workshops include: 

  • Right For You: Empowering Young People in Foster Care to Become Advocates and Leaders in Their Own Lives by the HI HOPES youth leadership boards
  • Can Do, Will Do, I Will presented by Na`u e Koho East Hawai`i.  Learn ways to set your intentions and plan your goals through Visualization, Inspiration and Action
  • Mindfulness presented by JoYi Rhyss.  JoYi will give you techniques and tools you can use to build a happier, healthier life
  • Both the morning Hiki Nō Panel and afternoon "FYA (Foster Youth Advocacy) Talks":  Hiki Nō  are presented by Foster Youth
    • Current and former foster youth will share how they found a path to Hiki Nō
    • Youth will offer tips on how you “can do” the same

We have a special musical guest coming as well as some great door prizes!
