 Valley of Rainbows' Global Youth Service Day Projects
Once again, Valley of Rainbows was the Lead Agency for the State of Hawaii to coordinate Global Youth Service Day Projects.  Youth planned various service projects:

  • Over 500 youth, grades 6-12, signed a pledge to be Safe Teen Drivers and share this important information with their family members.  These banners were displayed at over 11 schools to share the message and solicit others to take the pledge.
  • Three Safe Teen Driving sign 0waving campaigns were held at the three local high schools in partnership with Honolulu Police Department.  Over 500 youth and community members lined roads with their Safe Driving signs cautioning drivers to Slow Down, Drive with Aloha, Speed Kills, Arrive Alive, No Texting/Cell Phones and Cage the Rage signs.
  • Six elementary schools participated in a Slipper Drive, collecting thousands of slippers to distribute to their classrooms.  In Hawaii, students wear slippers to school, sometimes breaking and missing school.  Teachers have paid out of pocket expenses to buy slippers to share with their students.

Other Global Youth Day Projects included:  Providing Food and Toiletries for the Homeless and Needy, Reading to Our Kupuna (Seniors); Cleaning Keaau and Nanakuli Beach Park; Participating in the Martin Luther Day Parade in Waikiki promoting Diversity; Slipper Drive; Coordinating the Keiki Fun Activities at the Relay for Life event at Kapolei High School; Conducting Clothing and Food Drives at three high schools and 2 college campuses.
