Neneʻe is a program where keiki ages 5 – 14 are given opportunities to explore their ‘āina from ma uka (mountain) to ma kai (sea). The program’s curriculum is place-based meaning that special focus is made to highlight the history and culture of the students’ community. Students engage in moʻolelo (stories), hana noʻeau (Native Hawaiian art and practices) and kuleana (land stewardship).

At the end of each program session, students present an ʻĀina Pledge in which they commit to establishing life long habits that support the health of our planet like using refillable water bottles, eliminating single use plastic and removing invasive plants from our natural environments.
