Sunday’s Child hosts Xtreme Summer


Sunday’s Child Foundation’s “Xtreme Summer” programs get a head start on Summer when it launches in May.

Beginning May 14, at-risk youth and children in foster care ages 5 to 17 are invited to swim with the dolphins with Dolphin Quest at the Waikoloa Hilton.

On May 28, kids can have the thrill of a lifetime on an amazing zipline tour sponsored by Big Island Eco-Adventures. BIEA is located in Hawi and all children must weigh between 80 and 270 lbs.

The course consists of 8 exciting ziplines and is surrounded by a lush tropical canopy, magnificent waterfalls, and breathtaking ocean views.

“We are a mentorship program like non-other. I recently learned from Wally Lau, Deputy Managing Director of the West Hawaii Mayor’s Office, that we are the only big-brother big-sister program here in Hawaii,” said Lauren Rainier, Sunday’s Child Foundation’s founder and executive director.

“Our goal is to restore self-esteem in each child and to support them on a purposeful and focused path toward their future aspirations,” Rainier said.

Young adults in our community, who are looking for mentorship opportunities, are invited to enroll to become a volunteer and/or mentor by visiting the website.

“We really need strong moral leaders to raise our island keiki and that’s what we are working together to build. We have so many wonderful volunteers and mentors within our programs, but we are growing very rapidly and we can easily utilize more bright young minds to guide and influence our boys and girls,” Rainier said.

Sunday’s Child Foundation’s Kamalii Ohana Program is a structured mentorship program blended with Hawaiian cultural activities, arts and science, and experiential adventures, while providing guidance toward self-empowerment for each child.

Beginning June 20, Sunday’s Child Foundation is offering a 3-week discovery based learning and mentorship program on the beautiful grounds of the Sheraton Keauhou Bay in Kailua-Kona.

At-risk youth of all ages are welcome and the program is free.
