Youth & Family

Our youth represent our hopes and our community’s future. KKV’s Youth Services program aims to support Kalihi Valley’s children through all stages of life, building character and enthusiasm in our keiki and `opio through fun and educational activities. From tennis to gardening to the Kalihi Valley Instructional Bike Exchange (KVIBE), our caring staff provide safe spaces and opportunities for youth to build strong relationships with each other, with mentors, with their community, and within themselves.

KKV’s Family Strengthening program empowers parents to improve their economic status, enhance self-sufficiency and confidence, develop healthy lifestyles, and better support their family. Skills and confidence gained through English as a Second Language (ESL) classes, the microenterprise Sewing Club, and lessons on nutritional cooking, computer and job search skills and stress management enable participants to better negotiate their life as community members and parents.
