‘Imi ‘Ike is a project-based cultural learning program that helps youth to better connect with themselves, their ‘ohana, and their community through group services and community-based cultural learning activities. Program staff receive referrals, complete intakes and assessments, and facilitate weekly groups with youth that focus on various themes such as positive coping skills, good communication, healthy relationships, and other concepts. Groups are focused around culturally-relevant themes and each group unit culminates with a huaka’i (journey) to culturally-significant locations such as a loko i’a (fishpond), a lo’i kalo (taro patch), and a nahele (forest). The goal of the ‘Imi ‘ike program is to support youth in developing resilience, and help them to achieve a successful transition into young adulthood
‘Imi ‘ike is open to referrals from the public, including families, schools, and other agencies or organizations on O’ahu. Eligibility and appropriateness for participation will be determined by ‘Imi ‘ike program staff during initial intake and assessment. Services are voluntary and free; no fees are charged for this program.
