What is Hōkūpaʻa?
Hōkūpa΄a, the fixed star of wayfinding in Hawai’i, is a constant that Polynesian navigators use to plot their course. The success of young people in West Hawai’i is our hōkūpa‘a and we use this premise to guide our work.
Hōkūpaʻa is a partnership created through the investment of West Hawaiʻi youth and community leaders from University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo, Hawaiʻi Department of Education, Kamehameha Schools, Hawaiʻi Community College – Palamanui, County of Hawaiʻi, Hawaiʻi County Council, Hawaiʻi County Prosecutor’s Office, West Hawaiʻi Community Health Centers, The Learning Coalition and Friends of the Future.
