Complete The Stonewave Skatepark At The Paia Youth And Cultural Center

The Paia Youth and Cultural Center (PYCC) has just launched a Kickstarter project to complete the PYCC’s Stonewave Skatepark. The Stonewave skatepark has been up and running providing a safe and fun environment for youth from all over the island to skateboard. The park was completed to about 90% with temporary wooden ramps filling out the remaining ten percent of the park. Time and weather have been unkind to the ramps and they were recently decommissioned due to safety issues. The youth of PYCC would like to complete the park once and for all with a permanent concrete street course. The old ramps have been removed and initial foundation work has been done for the new park. However, construction has been put on hiatus due to lack of funding. PYCC has launched their own Kickstarter campaign to fill the gap. They are trying to raise $3,000 between now and April 17th. Pledges will be refunded if the full goal of $3,000 is not met by that time. Check out the video below for more details.

If you would like to make a pledge, check out the PYCC Stonewave Skatepark Kickstarter Page. Mahalo for your consideration!

Paia Youth and Cultural Center

The Maui Real Estate Team is proud to be supporters of the Paia Youth and Cultural Center (PYCC). This program based youth center attracts kids from all over the North Shore, Upcountry, Central Maui and more. Some of the great programs offered at PYCC include a youth run radio station, a cooking program, multi media lab, the stone wave skate park, a Girls Club, Malama Pono and more. The Youth Center is situated right on the beach at Paia Bay so the kids also love to play in PYCC’s back yard. This is a fantastic new promo video put together by the Youth Center that I thought was worth sharing.

The board of the Paia Youth and Cultural Center is in the process of organizing their annual fundraising event. Save the date on your calendars, this year we will be having “Casino de Mayo” on Saturday Night May 5th, 2012. We will have more information on the event and how to buy tickets as it gets closer.
