HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Adult Friends for Youth (AFY) strongly believes in helping "at risk" children and youth, "Believe that they Matter", and that their lives are meaningful, strengthened with a purpose and potential to achieve success.

AFY is committed to promoting safe schools and safe communities by redirecting destructive behaviors into constructive behaviors through advocacy, relationship building, nurturing, and mentoring.

One of AFY's most valuable components is the implementation of their six point plan, which is designed to help youth develop self-confidence, knowledge, self-Esteem, and the drive and perseverance to experience success and eventually for them to become productive and contributing members of society. The six point plan includes: education, employment & careers, recreation & sports, culture, community service, and social activities.
