Working, Attaining, Achieving

Increase your financial knowledge, gain job skills, and grow your savings!

About WA‘A


This program is currently being offered to families attending our Keiki and Parent Nights. Check back for more updates!

The WA‘A (Working, Attaining, Achieving) program is for those who want to improve their job skills and increase their financial understanding.


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. 

We’re grateful to be part of the 2022-24 ALICE® Cohort presented by  Aloha United Way and Hawai‘i Community Foundation.
