Empowering Students Through Service Learning

November 18, 2017

On November 18, 2017, PAAC’s after school classes organized and implemented a Global Action Project at Kokua Kalihi Valley’s Ho‘oulu ‘Aina. Students learned about native herbs and their uses, and helped to clear some of the mountain terraces of weeds (pictured above). It was a great lesson in how to Malama ‘Aina and in understanding how food progresses from farm to table.

During the fall semester, classes studied issues and history of the Korean Peninsula, the arts of India, and issues surrounding food security. PAAC is excited to bring its after school classes to ten schools for the spring semester: ‘Aiea, Campbell, Kaimuki, Kaiser, Kapa‘a, Kealakehe, Nanakuli, Roosevelt, Waiakea, and Waipahu high schools.
