EDUCATION

workforce & professional development

OUR foundation

“Hā is our breath, n(oa) is to release and a(kahai) is with grace. 

Hana symbolizes the act of releasing our breath–or spirit–with grace. 

In our hana, our work leaves something better than it was found.

O is forever or everlasting; coupled with hana, ʻohana is the concept of hana in perpetuity.  In our ʻohana, our hana is for each other and our future generations.”

 

- Pono Shim

 

OUR goal

 

Strengthen educational and skills development opportunities

for Hawaiʻi Island’s residents to pursue “hana.”

 

 

OUR STRATEGIES

Inventory State and County workforce development efforts

Assess their impact and identify opportunities for further initiatives

Convene, connect, and promote successful efforts while seeking alignment with our vision

How do we reconcile the wisdom of aloha

with the demands of today’s workforce?

  • Focus on purposeful relationships that lead to meaningful legacies rather than a series of transactions.

  • Nurture our connection to ʻāina and community, so that our life’s work brings health, well being and prosperity.
