Children & Youth Day happens on the first Sunday of October, each year. This year is the 28th Annual Event which begins on Sunday, October 3, 2021 at 6:00pm! CYD is a time to recognize the potential and special gifts of our keiki (children) and ‘ōpio (youth). It is a time for them to shine and share their bountiful energy with their community.
Caring for Hawai‘I Neonates is proud to partner with Hawaii Children and Youth Day to celebrate our keiki and recognize their unique contribution to all of us.
In 1994, the Hawai‘i State Legislature and Governor established Children and Youth Day (CYD) in Hawai‘i as the first Sunday of every October to celebrate and honor our children and youth and the special contributions they make to our community. After much community discussion, Act 30 of 1997 was passed to dedicate the entire month of October as Children and Youth Month in Hawai‘i.
