Workforce Development

WA‘A (Working, Attaining, Achieving) -  a workforce development program that supports financial stability and an increase in savings through vocational training and financial literacy education.

The WA‘A (Working, Attaining, Achieving) program is for those who want to improve their job skills and increase their financial understanding. Funded by the Aloha United Way and Hawaii Community Foundation ALICE initiative, the WA‘A program is modeled after the Hawaiian outrigger canoe, wa‘a, which requires a strong and resilient lead (the program participant) to set the destination and tone for their journey as well as a competent and agile crew (program staff and trainers) who work closely together to reach long-distance goals. 


Are you ready to reach your career and financial goals and chart your course to success? Join the WA‘A program for support with: 

Job Training & Placement
