Pua Mohala Healing & Advocacy Services provides
holistic and culturally relevant opportunities for indigenous youth to create a healthier lāhui. We identify with the ʻōlelo noʻeau, “I ka wā ma mua, i ka wā ma hope”, the future is in the past. By exploring past indigenous practices, our youth are able to find their place in this modern world to guide them into the future. Adolescence can be a wā (time period) filled with confusion and angst. Our curriculum is specifically designed and aligned to keep ʻōpio (ages 10-25 years old) rooted in their foundation as they journey through this phase of their development.
Workshops cover topics, which range from teen goal setting, coping techniques, and mental health awareness.
Retreats are multi-day events, which include various self-exploration activities like cooking demonstrations, meditation sessions, art, and music.
Developed curriculums on the following topics:
Quaran-TEEN: Coping with COVID 19
Mahina + Me: Exploring Waimakalehua (Menstrual Cycles)
Vision Board Goal Setting
Teen Substance Abuse
Curriculums in the making:
