Fall 2020: Middle & High School

Don't forget to take a look at our VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES page to see how students can get involved and serve their communities; even virtually.

Virtual Service Opportunity

Honoring the history of September 11th by serving in your community helps transform 9/11 into a day of unity, empathy, and service as an enduring and positive tribute to those lost and injured on 09/11/01, and many who rose in service in response to the attacks, including first responders, recovery workers, volunteers, and members of our military.

This September 11, with so many on the frontlines again serving communities in the fight against COVID-19, we ask you to join us in celebrating and sharing our ALOHA for our veterans, healthcare/frontline workers, and isolated kupuna.

Who can participate:

Anyone, All Ages

Dates available:

Sept. 1 through Sept. 11

What do you do:
Send messages to veterans, healthcare/frontline workers, and kupuna in two ways:
1) submit text for a card.  Our Atherton Student Board will print your cards and distribute them through our partners.
2) Submit a prerecorded video.  In a short video send a message of love, hope, and ALOHA to be compiled and distributed.

Submission Form:
Submit card messages.

Submit video messages.

Note: If you do not have a gmail account, videos must be emailed to studentboard@ymcahonolulu.org.  When you email we'll ask for the additional information needed for reporting purposes.  **All videos will be reviewed and if selected, a signed photo release waiver will be requested prior to it's distribution.
