Empowering Community


Hawaiian Values in Practice

The Institute for Native Pacific Education and Culture, fondly known as INPEACE, empowers communities—from the ground up. From pre-natal education to small business workshops, we nurture growing families through Hawaiian culture-based early learning education and promote community strengthening through educational equity, teacher development, and family economic capacity building programs.
