Legacy2Action 2024 - Application

Club 100 is proud to announce the launch of our 3rd annual educational initiative called Legacy2Action (L2A). Our partners are ʻIolani School, the University of Hawaiʻi Center on Aging and Central Pacific Bank. In this Problem Based Learning (PBL) initative, we challenge middle and high school students to identify a problem or issue facing Hawaiʻi and to develop a creative solution using the values of the 100th Infantry Battalion. Values like Giri (Obligation), Sekinin (Responsibility), Enryo (Modesty), Ganbaru (Give it Your All), Gaman (Perseverance), and Haji (don’t shame the family) are discussed as attributes of the 100th Infantry Battalion soldiers. They were small in stature, but giants when recognized with the 442nd RCT as the most decorated in U.S. Military history.

In prior years, a student observed a problem of underprivileged students arriving on the first day of school without the required school supplies. He developed a plan and implemented a drive to collect school supplies, and donated over 2,000 items to Ala Wai Elementary School. Last year, there were 31 participants and each student was passionate about developing creative solutions to help the community. Some problems identified were: 100th sacrifices being forgotten, declining bee population, loneliness of kupuna, intergenerational gaps, struggles with dementia, invasive algae, and many others. Schools represented thus far are: Stevenson Middle School, McKinley High School, Roosevelt High School, Maryknoll School, ʻIolani School and Punahou School. We look forward to participation from more schools this year. 


At last year’s presentation ceremony, Senator Brian Taniguchi noted, “the things that happened today speaks well of our future. We have a lot of talented students here who are able to produce very quality projects...we need to step back and think of how we look at our future in Hawaiʻi and I think getting our young people involved with different kinds of issues... and then looking back at the past and see how people solved some of these problems, which is very, very important and, bode well for us as we move forward.” 


In 2023, for the 81st Anniversary of the 100th Infantry Battalion's formation, we also received a special letter from Governor Josh Green noting, "Their initiative Legacy2Action focuses on the ideals and works to support and inspire young leaders to solve the issues that impact our state and nation. On behalf of the State of Hawaiʻi, I am honored to recognize the 100th Infantry Battalion and celebrate their legacy on the occasion of their 81st anniversary."
