Aloha Fellow Rotarians,

July is our Transition month. I have been working closely with your Board to finalize our yearly strategic goals and action plans. Hybrid meetings have provided more opportunities, but we have had some technological challenges too. We do not have very good Wi-Fi connection at the WYC and the mobile hotspot we have had often gets unstable. This has been a challenge, but no challenge is too big for Rotarians. We will find a better solution and ensure that we have better hybrid meeting experiences in the coming weeks.

This week, we are planning our members' reunion and our club assembly. This meeting will be an opportunity for us to hear from our past members and learn about the history of our club. Also, we will discuss many aspects of our club including our goals for this year. Therefore, this is also a good week to invite potential members. In addition, July 15 is our club deadline for community service projects. This year, we are encouraging more impactful community service projects that will also have hands-on components or will have opportunities for Rotarians to get involved.

Looking forward to seeing you all at our members reunion and club Assembly on July 15th.
Arjun Aryal
President, 2021-2022

Our speaker last week was Kaulana McCabe, who spoke about the Ho'okupu Center Program for at-risk youth.
The program's goal is to empower youth to serve their communities through character-building, service-learning, and environmental stewardship opportunities that encourage pono (integrity) with ke akua (God), self, and others.
The program provides hands-on real work training in conservation related fields for opportunity youth while empowering them to remove barriers that stand between them and their personal and professional goals.
For their first six weeks in the program, the participants do volunteer conservation work.
The youth, who are dropouts from school, attend 8 hours of school two days a week, to work towards a high school diploma. Some of the youth are 17 or 18 years old, reading at the second-grade reading level.
On the days they are not at school, the participants work at either a farm or the program's catering business, where they earn a paycheck while learning to grow food and prepare it. 
By the time they graduate from the program, the participants have volunteer service experience, paid work experience, and the GED. The program helps them become better people, and better workers.
President Arjun Aryal
