This Youth Impact Program is a phenomenal inspiration from the Hawaiian Community whom all came together as one, led by all of us, but especially Roy Yamaguchi.

The program is a reflection of the University of Hawaii and its winning leadership of Head Coach Nick Rolovich in his commitment to the community with his student athletes, and the staff of the Athletic Department of the University of Hawaii, the United States Marines, and the United State Army. They were the dream makers and igniters of hearts for these boys from Honolulu.
