Youth Action Alliance Hawaii (YAAH) is a free virtual program for Hawaii high school students seeking to be civically engaged, take action to address issues in their community, and possess a global understanding of how those issues connect Hawaii with the rest of the world. The program represents a collaboration between three like-minded non-profit organizations – Ceeds of Peace, HawaiiKidsCAN, and the Pacific & Asian Affairs Council – that believe young people are vital to tackling the challenges we face as a society. Each organization will draw on their strengths to oversee a different aspect of the program: global awareness, civic engagement, advocacy training, and community action.
