After school classes

Our after school program provides 8 week sessions of culture-based learning to students in schools throughout the Kapolei and Makakilo community. In these session, students receive a variety of lessons in cultural practices like hula, chant, Hawaiian language, ‘ukulele, music, native art, and health and fitness.

The program’s curriculum is place-based meaning that special focus is made to highlight the history and culture of the students’ community.

At the end of each session, students present what they’ve learned to family and friends in a hō‘ike. The act of presenting their knowledge validates their learning, builds confidence and makes their presentation a living and thriving art form.
