Connecting Business Reality
and Creative Thinking Skills

Our 3 core initiatives:

Support My Class

SupportMyClass.org is an online community that helps Hawaii’s public school teachers fund classroom needs that further the educational experience for local students. A teacher posts a wish list of items they need. Anyone who would like to support the class/project/teacher can donate. When the goal is met, the requested items are purchased and sent directly to the school!

Teacher Internship Program

Teacher Internship Program provides our 1st-12th grade educators with an orientation of today’s workforce and the essential skills that students will need to be successful in college, the workplace and as good citizens in various industries with a hands-on experience from the mailroom to the boardroom.

After-School Programs

We provide a broad range of high quality After-School programs for Hawaii’s students including the Media Academy, Lead to Succeed, Music & Technology Today, and Females Empowered programs. Our goal is to expose students to industry leaders and professional businesses partners from the community by creating comprehensive and innovative curriculums that provide students with problem-solving and creative thinking skills to help them succeed in school and life.

The Hawaii Children’s Foundation

The Hawaii Children’s Foundation is a 501 c(3) public charity dedicated to developing a rich, impactful relationship between the local business community, teachers and students of the public school system in Hawaii.   The goal is to increase student success by executing programs that enhance Hawaii Content Performance Standards and National Literacy Standards.

HCF is also focused on providing teachers with 21st century competencies through Hawaii’s General Learner Outcomes. We are executing programs that deliver valuable Professional Development Credits; enhance teachers’ understanding of current workplace challenges, so everyone can work together to promote student success.
