Dear Dream Makers, Supporters and Friends of our YIP,
As life would journey and the circle of life returns, your efforts with me in the development and great success of our Youth Impact Program has been recognized and elevated to another sector of people and region of the world. We were inducted into the Polynesian Football Hall of Fame in Honolulu, Hawaii because of your efforts. We are making tremendous impact on our communities with our at-risk youth. Thank you all for endeavoring to inspire and support this dream of ours that has become reality.
So inspiring was this four day event in Hawaii and with the Polynesian community and the Polynesian Football Hall of Fame event headed by Jesse Sapolu, I am determined to put one of our YIP programs into the University of Hawaii for “at risk” Polynesians.
Though you were not there over those days, you were each with me in being honored as you were part of the tribe and will forever be part of the tribe. Enclosed below are a few pictures and two videos on the induction ceremonies.
Thank your for making dreams come true!
