Hui Malama seeks volunteers for Employer Mentoring Project

By Staff | Apr 8, 2010

WAILUKU — Hawaii Community Foundation (HCF) recently awarded Hui Malama Learning Center $75,000 in support of the agency’s Employer Mentoring Project. 

The project aims to prepare students to be competitive in Maui’s local workforce.

 Students, who choose one of three tracks (college, job placement or self-employment), benefit from exposure to jobs that bolster our local economy.  

Hui Malama invites businesses and retired community members to share their knowledge and experience to guide and prepare our future workforce through employer presentations, hosting a business site visit, and offering job shadowing, internships and one-on-one mentoring. 

To get involved and make a difference in the lives of Maui’s youth, call 244-5911 or visit www.mauihui.org.

Employer Mentoring Project funds are provided by the Robert Emens Black Fund, Jean I. Fennimore Fund and HCF’s Youth Matters Initiative.

Hui Malama Learning Center provides positive educational alternatives and academic support services to students in grades 1-12 on Maui. Its goal is to empower students to realize academic and personal success. 

Hui Malama motivates students through hands-on, project-based learning that teaches character building and life skills.

A Maui United Way Agency, the center offers a variety of educational programs, such as middle school, high school, preparation for the General Education Development (GED) test, Furlough Friday activities and tutoring.
