Kamehameha Schools, the University of Hawaiʻi and Chaminade University of Honolulu have partnered to create Hālau ʻĪnana ma Kapaʻakea, a collaborative learning space that connects, engages and facilitates the success of students as they transition from high school to college and onto careers. The Mōʻiliʻili center is home to a unique educational incubator program designed to strengthen Mōʻiliʻili’s capacity to nurture, educate and uplift students and learners within the communities it serves.

Hālau ʻĪnana will enable learners to engage in highly creative, culturally-grounded, interdisciplinary collaboration with students from various colleges and programs. The learning center will also provide access to equipment, researchers, mentors and industry experts.

“These programs support incubating new businesses and product ideas, along with developing solutions for challenging community and business concerns,” said Hailama Farden, Kamehameha Schools community engagement and resources regional director for Kona Oʻahu.
