Molokai Complex Seeks Grant for Afterschool Program
DOE News Release
The 21st Century Community Learning Center (21CCLC) grant funds an afterschool enrichment program on Molokai. The Department of Education is applying to continue the 21CCLC funding for Molokai students and families.
If approved, the 21CCLC program will help youth and their ‘ohana – particularly those who attend schools needing improvement – with academic enrichment opportunities and support services to help meet state and local standards in core content areas.
Our proposed academic activities will include homework help, targeted grade level and subject tutoring, and credit/course recovery. Our personal enrichment activities include STEM activities, cultural activities, Molokai conservation activities, gardening, visual, music, dance, drama art activities, and physical education activities. We will also offer opportunities for knowledge in health, literacy, and student support to families of students served.
If you have suggestions for this project, or would like to review any waiver requests or the application after submission and award, please contact Jessica Kalanihuia, Program Specialist with the Department of Education by calling 808-553-1723 or writing PO Box 470 Kaunakakai, HI 96748.
