Calling All Papakolea Girls Ages 10 – 14

Ohana and Friends,

A flier went out to every house hold in the Papakolea Community asking for girls ages 10-14 to join in on our Hale o Papa Initiative.  Its a new girls-only program focused on girls ages 10-14.  This program is a collaboration with Kula No Na Poʻe Hawaii and the Queen Liliʻuokalani Childrenʻs Center that will offer weekly sessions to provide cultural, educational, and social development opportunities for our girls.  This experience will support girls as they set the direction of their lives and transition into womanhood while creating a strong support group of peers for one another.

Weekly sessions will be held after school on Thursdays from 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm at the Papakolea Community Center.  The first session is scheduled for May 2, 2013.

For more information or if you should have any questions, please feel free to call the center at (808) 520-8999.
