Adult Alaka'i Rotary Facilitators and student Youth Facilitators will take you through a variety of experiences, including virtual interactive games, activities and guided discussions on topics of leadership that you can relate to. Students from all across Hawai'i will participate in this virtual program that promises to empower and challenge you to become proactive in your school and community.
