Kulia and Ka Lama
Educators are the backbone of any institution of learning. Conveniently located in the Community Learning Center at Māʻili, Kūlia & Ka Lama Education Academy (KKLEA) works with community members who want to be teachers in their communities. This is a growing model that supports the social and economic well-being of the community. KKLEA works to overcome the inequity that exists in schools for which the teachers don’t reflect the community.
We provide culturally relevant financial workshops, personalized one-on-one coaching, and incentivized savings accounts that help people build family assets.
