The event is modeled after the “Teen Day” events put on by HI H.O.P.E.S in the First and Third Circuit Family Courts for youth in foster care. The acronym stands for Hawaii Helping Our People Envision Success.

This year’s Olympic Day on June 9 was the first since the pandemic. It was held at the Kaua‘i Community College.

“HI H.O.P.E.S. collaborated with Lili‘uokalani Trust and Hale ‘Opio Kaua‘i to bring this joyful event to our youth,” said District Family Court Judge Stephanie R.S. Char. “We canʻt thank them enough for supporting our keiki and young adults as they navigate life.”
