Activities will include American Red Cross swimming and stand-up paddling instruction. The primary age group is 11-15 years old but 10 year olds may join if they can show a commitment and are willing to listen and learn.

Younger children and older youth or adults that would like to help with stand-up paddling can be part of the steward and shepherd program. Younger children can still sign up but an adult must be present for those under 10 years old.

On Mondays and Wednesdays at 3-4 p.m., the swimming program will be at the Cooke Memorial Swimming Pool (American Red Cross levels 3-5). On Tuesday afternoons will be stand-up paddling at the Kaunakakai Harbor and every other Thursday afternoon on high tides. The Thursday sessions will be the downwind runs for the older and more advanced youth and any member from the Stand Up Paddle Association of Molokai.

Youth In Motion is also looking for volunteers to help with boosting our annual programs/events and bring more opportunities for our Molokai youth.
