Your support today will help our WAVE program expand its programming reach, train more advocates and take what we’ve learned to new communities and forums.

Together, we can make WAVEs! Here’s how to donate:

Monthly recurring gifts will provide sustainable support for WAVE. Your donation will go directly to the costs of participants attending trainings and educational events and facilitating community engagement.

Make a one-time contribution to support WAVE participants’ equity-centered training as they learn how to become impactful advocates for public education. WAVE (We Are Voices of Excellence) is a HawaiiKidsCAN program that equips youth and community members across the islands with the skills to lead impactful and localized advocacy campaigns.
