Apply to Ho‘omāka‘ika‘i

How to apply

Ho‘omāka‘ika‘i is a one-week program for students that will be entering the 6th grade. The program engages students in hands-on learning activities focused on cultural values and practices to develop Hawaiian identity and leadership.

  • Due to COVID-19 safety precautions, boarding will NOT be provided for the Summer 2021 Ho‘omāka‘ika‘i program. Instead, our week-long program will operate in a hybrid learning model including both digital learning days combined with in-person, community-based learning days.
  • Regional programs will run on the islands of Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, Maui, and Hawaii island. Students will be assigned to in-person, community-based learning days, in the region in which they reside. Students living outside of these 5 islands will be asked in the application which island program they plan to attend and are responsible for providing their own air transportation and boarding for the program or have the option of participating in this program entirely via digital learning (no in-person learning). *Note: We do feel that the in person field trip days will provide valuable learning for your keiki and cannot be replicated in a digital learning format. Please select the full digital version only if you are truly unable to travel due to the current circumstances.
  • Regional bus transportation will be provided for in-person, community-based learning days. Please note, there will be no bus transportation to/from Hana.
