I really can not say enough great things about this organization. We were brought to Five Mountains Hawaii (FMH) by our involvement in Kohala Coalition Against Drugs. We found their program North Hawaii Drug Free Coalition (NHDFC). We quickly became part of that leadership team and the ball has just continued to roll forward. I have been blessed to attend training at CADCA in Washington DC. NHDFC has supported our efforts in our non profit, Roots Advocates For Youth, as a positive youth engagement activity to help keep youth involved and healthy. I was blessed to get training as a mentor through Five Mountains for another project of theirs, Life Plan. I was able to volunteer for a school year and see one entire 8th Grade Class go through this program. To see and hear what this program has sparked in these youth has made it a complete success story for me. The icing on the cake for me is how FMH supports volunteers in building personal leadership/capacity skills. FMH investment in my personal training received through FMH for my current training in Nonprofit Management course I will be able to not only take with me but have skills for my future and potential job opportunities. I have huge hopes and wishes that FMH will be around for years to come. My experiences with this nonprofit I will always hold dear and forever be grateful. Sincerely, Kimberly Lepold, Roots Advocates For Youth, a 501 c(3)
