In 2016, PCDC implemented its first summer youth program, Kupua‘e, utilizing ‘ōlelo Hawai‘i as its foundation in providing culture-based education, to 25 keiki of Papakōlea, ages 3-7. The program was incredibly successful by increasing access to ‘olelo Hawai‘i and culture-based programming, and promoting school readiness for pre-kindergarten/kindergarten levels. The 2016 Final Report is available for download and review by clicking here.
PCDC is preparing for 2017 programming and will be distributing applications in May 2017. If you have any questions or are interested in receiving an application in May, e-mail Ms. Lilia Kapuniai, Executive Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Mahalo.
