Kupukupu App: Strengthening Youth Wellbeing and Executive Functioning Skills

To engage youth, Liliʻuokalani Trust created an innovation called the Kupukupu App. Primary focused on enhancing important life skills such as planning, time management, and emotional regulation, the App is a fun way to set goals and practice building habits. The App also emphasizes wellbeing and healing. Youth can assess their overall wellbeing in the dimensions of Naʻau (culture and spiritual), ʻOhana (family and community), Olakino (physical and emotional health), ʻImi ʻIke (learning), and Kumu Waiwai (resources). The App has a page for reflective journaling and another page for Pono Activities like Hanu Hā or breathing exercises and Ola Kino Stretching videos, both to strengthen coping skills and mindfulness. Please join us as we talk-story about how the App can be used within your context to support the development of youth skills and habits.
