Projects

 

Our projects are most often collaborative partnerships with other agencies such as a school, university or other nonprofit. Some of our projects include:
Na Hokulele
The Na Hokulele Project received support as a Subaward Recipient: HPU: U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Office of University Partnerships Grant Award # AHIAC-10-HI-01 and CFDA# 14.515 ($440,000.00). This three-year project (2010-2014) is designed to (a) provide learning activities to help children from the Kalihi-Palama region become better prepared to enter STEM fields for further education and become aware of opportunities available to them; (b) provide adults with more knowledge about community-economic-workforce development for the Kalihi-Palama community and; (c) help the Kalihi-Palama community members become aware of emerging community-economic-workforce development and assist with community-based support at the end of the grant program.
Robot Invasion 
The Robot Invasion Project received support from Friends of Hawaii Robotics, a nonprofit working to support the development and growth of educational robotics programs in the state of Hawai‘I ($79,000.00)
This one-year project (2010 -2011) brings robotics education, standards and project-based learning into the content-area classroom through a series of integrated, web-based, thematic units written for grades 4-5, 6-8, and 9-12. 
Sustainable Agriculture Training Project received support from the Lanie Albrecht Foundation for 25 at-risk, young people from low-income, unemployed families to engage in a job-readiness, Sustainable Agriculture Training Project with a “Farm to Table” focus ($51, 426.00). During this phase (2011-2012) of a larger four-year project, the generous gift bought an essential van, tractor/attachments, and Rototiller. This job skills training project, (in partnership with the generous offer of a plot of land to “farm,” by the University of Hawaii at Manoa’s College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources (CTAHR)/ Magoon Research Station) assists participants’ awareness of entry into Hawai‘i’s food services industry, one of our state’s largest industries and currently in need of workers.Our projects are most often collaborative partnerships with other agencies such as a school, university or other nonprofit.
