Mission

Oahu Adventures Foundation, Inc. Mission Statement We support activities that promote leadership training and scuba diving for several audiences. We do this by raising money, creating and delivering programs, and funding other like-minded organizations. First, we develop youth through leadership training, environmental awareness and action, and teaching employable skills through scuba diving instruction and participation. Third, we support the special hard and soft cost needs associated with diving with a handicap. Fourth, we use our leadership training research and expertise to develop programming for the non-diving community such as our Five Star Leadership® methodology. We support leadership training such as Philmont Training Center of the BSA and community education.

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Leadership programs can be delivered cost-effectively and interestingly. Generally they are neither inexpensive nor interesting to most people.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Scuba Scholarships

This program funds scholarships o enable youth ages 14-16 to increase their level of scuba education by one level and to provide them an opportunity to serve their community involving a scuba related service project.

Population(s) Served
Adolescents

We support the special hard and soft cost needs associated with diving with a handicap. We do this through raising and distributing money to offset costs of equipment, instruction, diving, and dive travel that can be much higher than average. We also support the research, cataloguing, and communicating of the best ways for handicapped divers to enjoy dive travel.

Population(s) Served

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We aim to bring leadership development to interested parties in a low-cost, highly interesting format.

We are all volunteers with expertise and interest in leadership development, especially in the ways Scuba can make programs great fun. We also raise money to fund other organizations of similar passion, but different capability.

We are professionals in Scuba diving and leadership development. We also have lots of friends willing to help with time, expertise, and some money(very little, but what the heck).

We have developed the Five Star Leadership(r) seminar series this year. We have identified opportunities for 2021.
