A pathway lies ahead to pursue and perpetuate your prosperity. In our modern transactional society, tangible and valuable skills are required to be relevant in Hawaii’s economy. With Hawaii’s staggering minimum living wage, our people need alternative pathways to success. The Makaha Learning Center, along with its partners, has developed programs that deliver educational experiences that match the evolving needs of business.

working in a HUBZone Area.

through our trade-training programs.

SOLAR-5 Youth Camp

FILLING THE GREATEST NEED
There is a need for skilled workers in four high demand sectors throughout the United States. The lack of qualified tradespeople, technicians and project managers add to the growing disparity in the construction field.
The Makaha Learning Center is committed to revitalizing the trades and offers a diverse set of skills programs, tailored for all ages. From STEAM camps for school-aged children to core youth classes and continuing education classes.
