Ka Ipu Kukui
Ka Ipu Kukui Fellows is a year-long leadership development program uniquely designed for community-identified current and future leaders of Maui Nui. The curriculum specifically addresses the many challenges that face Maui Nui and provides participants unfiltered access to a variety of key individuals and locations on Maui.
Each month, the program’s content focuses on the multiple perspectives of Maui’s different challenges. Through these monthly learning opportunities known as Halawai, participants develop a holistic appreciation and understanding of these unique challenges, ultimately arriving at a more informed framework and a more enhanced network to better address Maui Nui’s challenges in the future.
