Program Objectives

  • Begin the first girl-led climate emergency response toolkit for Hawai’i.
  • Provide leadership development and scaling opportunities to kaikamahine and their wāhine mentors through culture-based solutioning.
  • Amplify community resilience through Hawai’i-serving organizations to address climate change, environmental injustices, legacy pollution, and disaster risk reduction.
  • Create an informal network of girls and community leaders who will champion climate justice in their own frontline neighborhoods, at school, and with their other civic affiliations to accelerate climate resilience through gender equity.


We are committed to creating an inclusive community of learners and are devoted to creating an equitable environment for diverse voices to be heard. 

Program participants to be prioritized for recruitment will be: BIPOC Girls residing across the Hawaiian Islands aged 12 – 18. 

At ICP, we reference the Building Bridges, Not Walking on Backs A Feminist Economic Recovery Plan for COVID-19 by the Hawaiʻi State Commission on the Status of Women gender inclusive references for girls+ and women+ to women, girls and people who identify as women, including trans* women, and who identify as femme, nonbinary and/or genderfluid.


Multi-generational learning are core values to ICP’s work. Mentors help us uplift and support participants to bring their own ideas to life in creative and refreshing ways as they navigate important life milestones. 

Mentors in this program help foster support for participants throughout the program and beyond.
