Youth Enhancement & Mentorship Program
A place to gather...
Ka'ehu Bay has a long running history of being a resource for our community. The Kaʻehu Youth Enhancement & Mentorship Program (KYEMP) is a collaboration between cultural practitioners, natural resource management specialists, and community leaders to train students in traditional land stewardship practices and values found in the Ahupuaʻa land management system.
The after-school and summer program bring the youth of our community together with various professionals to cultivate long-term success through career education and hands-on experience. KYEMP empowers our youth with opportunities to support the community and mālama ʻāina (care for the land) and mālama kai (care for the ocean).
*Funded by the Administration for Native Americans
The Kaʻehu Internship Program will allow college students and adults an opportunity to work with Natural Resource Management specialists and Cultural Practitioners to learn about Traditional Land Stewardship practices.
