“Mo was an amazing young man that had so much respect for people,” said Deborah Spencer-Chun, President and CEO of Adult Friends for Youth. “He was charismatic and the person in the room everyone wanted to be with. He had a heart of gold and gave so much of himself to the young people AFY served. He wanted to always give back what he was given in life…a second chance. He will be dearly missed. I, the other staff members, and the family have been inundated with calls and texts because of all the lives he has touched. He was truly a peaceful warrior and a champion for our kids.”

During COVID-19, AFY's presence in the lives of our youth has never been more important than now.

AFY continues to engage youth in our services, focusing on educational support and ensuring our seniors graduate from high school and prepare for future opportunities. Whether it be to help with access to technology, tutoring, or adjusting schedules to hold smaller classes at our offices and our mobile educational vehicle in our parking lot, we have been relentless in working to ensure our wrap around services to our youth and their families are not reduced but expanded.

Please help us ensure our programs can continue through the summer and into the next school year. Your compassion, generosity and Aloha for this important work at such a critical time in our community would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for helping all youth believe they matter!
