Livaudais is studying economics and political science. He and friend Pete Kovach created a nonprofit organization, "Holoumua Life Learning," to empower the youth through education in practical life skills such as financial literacy, professional development, and health and wellness. This organization is run entirely by college students, so they can apply classroom lessons and gain real world experience.

Holomua's classes incorporate new interactive teaching methods and practical theories in order to foster an engaging learning environment.

"Since starting this organization, I have been yearning to serve my home community through Holomua," said Livaudais. "I am thankful to Lehua Huddleston-Hafoka of the Kihei Youth Center and the two Rotary clubs in Kihei for allowing me to help educate our local youth. It has been a great challenge and a humbling experience to develop a nonprofit organization while still in college, but my team's hard work has made it possible."

To register for this workshop email Huddleston-Hafoka at, or call the Kihei Youth Center at 879-8698.
