Super Enrichment Saturdays are half-day, theme-oriented programs held statewide at Nä Pua No‘eau sites that provide educational opportunities for children of Hawaiian ancestry in grades kindergarten through twelve.

On designated Saturdays, Hawaiian students are able to enhance their skills and talents in a challenging learning environment and learn a wide variety of themes and topics.  Some of these themes include voyaging, tsunami, crime investigation, Hawaiian health, etc.

 

Super Enrichment Saturday activities are intended to help Hawaiian students develop a stronger interest in learning, connect education and learning to their Hawaiian identity and to provide an opportunity to explore possible educational and career goals they may not have considered.

Many of the activities are held at Higher Educational institutions like the University of Hawai‘i and Community College campuses on each island.  The students are taught by university faculty, school teachers and masters from the community.

 

For many of the students, Super Enrichment Saturday may be their first experience on a higher education campus.  This gives Hawaiian students a first-hand opportunity to get familiar with a college setting.

 

Dates vary at each site. Applications are available at all Nä Pua No‘eau offices.
