Who We Are
Kids At Risk Mentoring Program (KAMP) Hawaii is a non-profit organization established in December 2005 that focuses on disadvantaged, at-risk youth in our communities and children with disabilities. We are currently working in conjunction with local public schools, program sites thousands of students, teachers and volunteers.
KAMP Hawaii has a solid curriculum and quality program with direct links to family and community values. Our approach is prevention oriented with a proven curriculum, and a series of exciting and challenging activities that inspires youth. KAMP Hawaii offers our youth “Life Mentoring Programs” that teaches positive values, teamwork and leadership skills in a safe, exciting, and fun environment. KAMP Hawaii programs foster positive changes through goal setting, self-discipline, and a positive self-view that encourages personal growth in schools, homes and community. The importance of teamwork and leadership skills is taught through a series of activities that stress communication, role modeling and group facilitation in return produces positive outcomes.
Youth that are from low-income, subsidized housing, and English as Second Language (ESL) immigrant families, as well as youth that have experienced failures in the classroom along with the development of destructive habits are among the at-risk. Our program is here to help them be successful by teaching them positive values, teamwork and leadership. And we will accomplish this goal by providing our young people a caring, inclusive learning environment that promotes their best effort and reinforces personal respect and respect for others. The focus is slightly different for each of our programs but the goal remains the same; empower the young person to make positive changes in his/her life, learn to work with their parents, school administrators, teachers and peers, and to be positive influences/leaders in their environments.
