Empowered Maui is a group level intervention for LGBTQ youth and their supporting allies ranging from 13-26 years of age. Empowered is designed to provide Native Hawaiian cultural values, leadership training, goal setting, healthy living and community service dealing with LGBTQ youth for the county of Maui. Our main focus is to ensure the safety for all and provide a safe environment so they can be themselves and progress to be positive leaders in the LGBTQ community in general. Empowered also educates and provides guidance towards families (Parents, uncles, aunties etc.)
