ʻŌlelo Noeau 507:
"He ʻaʻaliʻi kū makani mai au; ʻaʻohe makani nāna e kulaʻi"

I am a wind resisting ʻaʻaliʻi, no gale can topple me over.

The `a`ali`i is a hardy native plant revered for its resilience and beauty. `A`ali`i are known for thriving in adverse conditions and in a variety of elevations and environments. Our goal is for our Mentees to embody the strength of the `a`ali`i, confident in their ability to thrive.


Our Mission

A`ALI`I Mentoring aims to foster and cultivate mentoring relationships that support Hawaii’s young adults from under-resourced communities. With mentoring, young adults can persevere and reach their post-secondary educational, career and personal aspirations.

Our Vision
