If you have not yet read and signed all volunteer waivers and completed our volunteer application form, please do so before attending this training event:
1. Submit the online volunteer forms at https://hoolanapua.org/new-volunteers/.
2. Register to become a volunteer at https://hoolanapua.org/volunteer/.
The first part of your training starts with a brief overview of Hoʻōla Nā Pua, followed by a showing of “Chosen” (an anti-trafficking documentary short, watch the Chosen trailer here) and a “Sex Trafficking Facts in Hawaii” presentation. The second part will include information on how to become a volunteer, what the requirements are, what volunteer opportunities there are as well as becoming a Hoʻōla Nā Pua advocate. Everyone will also have the opportunity to learn about the upcoming Hoʻōla Nā Pua events and what you can do to assist us.
Our Advocate Program consists of regional teams of Community Advocates and Donor Advocates. Community Advocates will collaborate on actionable ideas to engage each region’s community members (e.g. networking with businesses, organizations, and individuals) in community outreach to spread awareness through tabling events and speaking engagements. Donor Advocates are those interested in assisting Hoʻōla Nā Pua with seeking financial support through direct fundraising, holding or assisting with fundraiser events, direct donations, $1000 from $1000 sustaining partners and strategizing on how to use their contacts in the community to assist us with meeting our fundraising goals. Volunteers can participate as both types of Advocates.
Please complete the form to the right to register to attend. Space is limited, so please register early.

Volunteer Orientation & Advocate Training is required for all volunteers, and provides you with a great opportunity to:
- Meet team leaders and fellow volunteers.
- Hear updates about our latest milestones and projects.
- Get involved in our community and church outreach campaign “Awareness with Purpose”.
The goal of our “Awareness With a Purpose” campaign is to raise the funds and volunteer hours needed to build a nurturing home where underage female sex trafficking victims can heal from their trauma. Volunteers on each regional team (North Shore, Central Oahu, Leeward Coast, Windward Side, and South Shore) collaborate on actionable ideas to engage each region’s community members (e.g. businesses, organizations, and individuals) in awareness and outreach programs, and further expand that outreach by seeking support through direct donations, sustaining partners, and other creative fundraising ideas.
Hoʻōla Nā Pua strives to match volunteer’s strengths and interests with the needs of our organization, and to offer you a rewarding volunteer experience. No matter what your strength, skill, or availability, there are many short-term and long-term volunteer opportunities.
Thank you again for your interest in volunteering with Hoʻōla Nā Pua. We look forward to working with you and in creating a positive experience for you as you engage in the mission, vision and goals of Hoʻōla Nā Pua.
