Current Goals. Volunteers from diverse sectors work together on selected goals to tackle priority issues. Currently, KPAA goals focus on planning for Kauai’s sustainability, supporting and transforming education through youth development, state park improvements, and using community indicators to help guide decision making.¬† We are also assisting the County of Kauai by exploring new economic development opportunities.¬† On occasion, KPAA offers workshops and activities for Kauai nonprofits designed to increase skills and build capacity.
