The selected VISTA application will be expected to: 1. Increase collaboration through network building among government, nonprofit, and community partners to better respond to the needs of low income and Native Hawaiian communities across the state. 2. Work with high school faculty and administrators, as well as support service providers and higher education partners to build secondary school capacity while also encouraging resource sharing and collaboration. This may include conducting outreach, relationship building, event coordination and facilitation, as well as keeping accurate notes and tracking next steps. 3. Work closely with partners to collect data and identify additional areas of needed support. 4. Work with community partners to develop sustainable funding streams for the project and activities. Specific duties include supporting partnerships, conducting qualitative and quantitative research, supporting budgeting and evaluation, as well as grant writing. Member Duties : 1.

Member Duties : The project, Project Hoohiapo, is focused on creating an auwai (pathway) linking youth, secondary school teachers, higher education partners, and aina-based practitioners to improve educational equity and the food system. Currently, there is a lack of mentoring opportunities within and between organizations, generations, and communities and a lack of opportunities for Native youth to complete secondary education and pursue higher education. By establishing a supported pathway from high school to higher education and beyond, Project Hoohiapo seeks to create opportunities for youth to become more self-sufficient and improve socioeconomic conditions for their communities. This year's work will focus on capacity building in the areas of strengthening partnerships with schools and students, securing additional funding, and finding new opportunities to increase the sustainability of the network and contribute to the broader work of our partners such as UHWO's SCFS program.
