One Ohana Sharing Aloha

Keeping you updated thru regular bulletins

President Grace has asked that the Center provide our staff, students and volunteers with regular updates regarding the Center. As information becomes available, we will post links to these updates via email and through our internal Facebook pages. We care about you and look forward to having our Ohana back and ready once again to share our beautiful Polynesian cultures with the world.
