PBS Hawai'i
The middle and high school students at Ke Kula Ni'ihau O' Kekaha, our Service-Learning partner on Kaua'i during our J-term course, Hawai'i: Multi-Cultural Communication in Diverse Organizations, have created a story about our partnership that recently aired on PBS Hawai’i. It is a compilation of our time with this amazing bi-lingual environmental magnet school in 2014 and 2016. We were thrilled when they received the University of St. Thomas Service-Learning Community partner award in 2014 and we look forward to another great project with them in January 2017.
