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.
The 2Gen Secure Families Project will assist families that are enrolled in INPEACE’s Keiki Steps or Parents As Teachers program start their own small business and increase their income.
