After a decade of planning, fundraising, dreaming and more planning, our incredible dream is now a reality! On May 20th, the doors to our brand new Harry & Jeanette Weinberg Windward Clubhouse opened welcoming everyone from our members to our generous supporters to our community cheerleaders. It was a spectacular day!
Recogniton — that’s what this week was about! Our boys completed the Sons Loved and Mentored program, and our girls the Girls Loved and Mentored program.
Ms. Kelli was recognized for the heart and soul she put into the lives of our members as she ventures on to a new chapter in her life with a little one on the way — we’ll miss you but look forward to meeting JAM IV! 🙂
And then there was the Basketball Awards and Recognition program on April 1st — lots of food, family and fun — many thanks for Mr. Julian and Ms. Tee for making this happen!
One of our most beloved programs, GLAM (Girls Loved and Mentored) has a new look and feel to it, thanks to its founder, Mrs. Oahu, Tiare Lando. The program, which usually ran 8 weeks and led by staff member, Ms. Tia, has been refined and condensed into a 4 week period, where young girls are able to learn from not only Ms. Tia, but Tiare and her GLAM squad! Lessons on self-esteem, bullying, heartache, harships and inner beauty are discussed in-depth by the group.
Just a side note: Tiare and her team are the best! They always come ready to talk, ready to listen, ready to mentor and ready with treats! See below for some snapshots of the class! Thank you GLAM Hawaii for truly making an impact on the lives of our young women!
