Oahu’s Micronesian Youth Summit (MYS) brings together Micronesian youth on Oahu for their voices to be heard and for them to explore their strength, potentials and futures. Organized by a planning committee comprising of We Are Oceania (WAO) staff and partners along with UH’s Micronesia Connections and other community leaders, MYS rests on three pillars essential to navigating success: College Readiness, Career Readiness and Community Readiness. Students are able to attend workshops, forums, discussions, and other activities. Just as important, it allows Micronesians to talk about our history and culture. Our program is geared towards middle and high school aged students, yet all are welcome to participate!
