Mana Project Update

Beginning this semester, we are partnering with the Peninsula Conflict Resolution Center to bring the Mana Project to PAHS! This exciting after-school program will help students develop their academic identities, their connections to the school and other students, and their cultural and social awareness. Students will determine many of their activities and community service project themselves, and the semester will culminate with our participation in the Peninsula-wide Mana Conference. Students can earn credits for their participation in the project, and transportation home is provided after the program concludes.
The program launched last week, with PCRC facilitators Keisarina Hafoka and Ailao Eliapo running the show. Students who attended had a great time, and we expect the program to grow as the semester continues.
The Mana Project runs every Tuesday and Thursday after school until 4:15 pm.
We hope to see you there!
