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 (an LT subsidiary) in downtown Honolulu. These healing places will offer youth with opportunities for hope, growth, and steady transition into the next chapters of their lives.

Located in Urban Honolulu, Lydia House is a puʻuhonua and place of healing for Opportunity Youth (ages 16-26) transitioning out of care, including involvement with the Child Welfare and/or Juvenile Justice System. Lydia House is a subsidiary of LT; visit its website at www.lydiahousehi.org.

LT Ranch


Located in a lush, rural community on Hawaiʻi Island, LT Ranch offers 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. The nature-based programs at LT Ranch 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.

Interest forms for LT Ranch's 2023 Programs will be available soon. For more information, please contact Jill Beatty at jbeatty@onipaa.org
