YWAM • Kokua Crew

Kokua Crew

Our Kokua Crew Ministry is part of Youth With A Mission and based here in Kailua-Kona, on the beautiful Island of Hawai’i.
Our on average around 100 Volunteers help to keep things at our University (The University of the Nations) running.
In around 13 Departments such as the Kitchen, Gardening, Maintenance or Construction we seek to be supportive for the bigger Vision.

Our Preschool, the Learning Center or Foundation School are also equipped and supported by our Volunteers, who can come to volunteer with us
for 6 Weeks or 3 Months. Meals and Housing is provided in return for their Labor.

As equally pationate we are about getting work done, we also love to see our Volunteers grow in their personality, spiritually and hope to guide them in life decisions. Through small Groups, One on Ones or Mentorship, our weekly Ohana (Family) Meetings and Devotions we love to see them be inspired and encouraged to move beyond.

After work hours (7am – 3pm) and Weekends we love to have Fun. A few beaches are walkable and plenty of opportunities are on hand to experience the beautiful Big island.
Waterfalls, Rainforests, Lava Fields or endless Beaches; we are incredibly blessed by the variety of Nature.

Our Core Values

Serving God with a purpose is our motto • Family is our value • Adventure is our lifestyle.


The Kokua Crew Program is a Volunteer Work Program where we support our University (University of the Nations) in 13 core Areas. Cooking for our Students, Gardening to keep the Campus clean or Maintenance just to mention a few.


We provide tons of Opportunities to help our Volunteers grow in their personal Relationship to God as well as areas of their lifes. Through One on Ones, personal Mentorship and Small Group Opportunities they have a place to share their Heart. Family Nights with a variety impactful Speakers and Big Cooperate Worship Nights offer a Guide to fall in Love with Jesus more and more.


Of course we love Adventure and the Big Island is full of it. Beaches are reachable if not walking distance and give them a place to let go of daily Life. Our Program offers Saturday trips with our 15 Passanger Vans to different Sights. Renting a car or even buying is an Option.
