Opportunity Youth

Opportunity Youth

LT serves Opportunity Youth ages 16-26 as they transition from adolescence into young adulthood. Programs are offered throughout the pae ʻāina, with a special emphasis at LT Ranch on Hawai'i Island and Lydia House in downtown Honolulu. These healing places will offer youth with opportunities for hope, growth, and steady transition into the next chapters of their lives.

Nurse Aide Training Program

In partnership with RYSE Hawaiʻi and Hawaiʻi Pacific Health, Liliʻuokalani Trust was proud to offer the Nurse Aide Training Program at Liliʻuokalani Center over the summer. This is part of the Trustʻs larger efforts to offer supportive career pathways for young people, while filling a vital community need.

Lydia House


Opening February 2023

Located in Urban Honolulu, Lydia House is a puʻuhonua and place of healing for Hawaiian opportunity youth (16-26) transitioning out of "systems involvement," including foster care and the juvenile justice system. Lydia House is a subsidiary of LT; visit its website at www.lydiahousehi.org.

LT Ranch


Currently in development; Expected to open early Fall 2022.

Located in a lush, rural community on Hawaii-Island, LT Ranch will offer both day programs and in-residence camps for youth (13-18) who find themselves in challenging circumstances whether at school, work, or in their personal lives. This nature-based program offers activities that promote meaningful connections and healing through ʻāina, animals, and art all within an intimate and experiential ranch setting.  Youth will benefit from extra support, growing their inherent potential, and identifying next steps for their self-defined success.
