Hawaii Youth Services Network General Membership Meeting
May 11 @ 10:00 am – 1:30 pm

Presentation on increasing awareness and the impact of Micronesian culture among youth workers in Hawaii.

“Cultural differences between Micronesia and Hawai‘i in the areas of medical care, employment, education and laws, compounded with the unfamiliarity with navigating Hawai‘i’s systems and services, has led to the numerous challenges facing the Micronesian community in Hawai‘i. Among these challenges are homelessness, highest number of student truancy, lack of job readiness skills, increasing numbers of children in child welfare services, and increasing numbers of juvenile and adult incarcerations.”
