KUGA is a non-profit, drug and alcohol free project committed to the development of young adults in a positive and creative environment. “We promote a clean and healthy lifestyle by words and action. We value relationships to the fullest and strive to pull out the best in others,” says KUGA’s mission statement. KUGA strives to be a creative and safe environment with mentors, classes and activities that stress family values: respect, integrity and love.
In the past, KUGA has worked with the County of Kaua‘i in providing alternative activities for at-risk children and teens. “Currently we are pursuing the idea of a collaborative effort with the public school system in order to help our b-boys (break dancers) excel in school and break-dancing by setting up a reward system and accountability,” states KUGA’s Web site.
