Na Haku Youth Mentor Program

Since last fall I've had the incredible privilege of working with Nikki Mozo on a youth mentorship program called Na Haku (It means The Creators in the Hawaiian Language) as a project for SIFE. SIFE is a non profit organization that stands for Students In Free Enterprise and is something that I'll explain more about in the future.

This project is one of the reasons I stayed in Hawaii a little bit longer after I graduated so I could see the program grow. Right now we are working with a group of young students who have a desire to learn entrepreneurial skills to help them connect their creative side to their desire to start their own business. This little video is about Jack who is one of the young entrepreneurs we have been working with. He has some crazy good talent with mural art and is in the middle of starting his own business doing that and designing t-shirts.

Another aspect of working with Nikki and helping her with her late husbands photography business has been the creation of a documentary that showcases the work and story of her late husband Jon. For more info on Jon and his legacy click here. I consider myself very fortunate to have the opportunity to help out and be a part of this awesome project. The trailer to the documentary was just released and I'll be posting it here soon. Stay tuned...
