THE STORY:

The significance of education as a beacon of hope for the future of Pacific Islander communities cannot be overstated.  It is a vessel for creating culturally relevant and effective solutions addressing the various issues facing Pacific Islander families.  The Pacific Islander Leaders of Tomorrow (PILOT) program is needed in the Pacific Islander community because it increases awareness and access to higher education; however, equally important, because it is specifically for Pacific Islander students, it equips these students to understand their identity, where they belong, their connection to others and their environment, and cultivates a desire to contribute to communities as advocates and agents of change.  

A group of advocates are training for the 2016 Los Angeles Marathon to raise funds to support PILOT.  Your love and generosity will contribute to our commitment to a bright future for our community.
