On October 6th, the Friends of the Family student club of the Department of Family and Consumer Sciences hosted a booth at the 26th annual Children and Youth Day on the grounds of the Hawaii State Capitol. An estimated 50,000 people attended this free event for Hawai‘i’s families. The Friends of the Family members shared dehydration-prevention methods with children and parents and engaged the keiki in drawing pictures of how they stay hydrated every day.

The Children and Youth Day also provided an opportunity for Human Development and Family Studies students to visit booths of local organizations that help support children and families to make professional connections. Fellow CTAHR member Christine Hanakawa (below left), the O‘ahu 4-H Cooperative Extension agent, also dropped by for a nice chat.
