Summer 2021

MALO hosted their first youth leadership development program: MALO Youth Empowerment Summit (YES). Having both a virtual and an in-person component, MALO YES occurred over three days. During these three days, the participants were able to get to know one another and engage with each other physically, become more knowledgable and grounded in their Tongan identity, recognize the importance of health and the health issues present in their communities and at home, and think about the work they can do to help their community.
