Youth In Motion News Release
Youth in Motion, the Molokai organization that offers free keiki lessons in a variety of ocean sports, begins its stand-up paddling season on Aug. 18 running through Thanksgiving.
Anyone interested in joining Youth in Motion for the 2014-15 year can come down to the beach area at Kaunakakai Harbor on Thursday, Aug. 7 or 14 at 6 p.m. to sign up and learn more about the program for the coming year. Swimming will also be introduced in September and again in 2015.
Youth In Motion is also encouraging adults and youth who are interested in volunteering, planning, coordinating, writing, photography and filming to participate in the program so that they can assist with the website, newsletters, videos, social media and bring back the festival “A Celebration of Youth Opportunities” — “Na Opio Hana Pa’a.”
There are plenty of fun ideas for Youth in Motion for 2014-15. All of these ideas revolve around the group’s mission statement: “Empower, equip, educate, challenge and motivate youth through activities that engage and develop their mental, emotional, creative and physical skills on the land and in the ocean.”
