Kalakaua Middle School


Through partnership between the R.E.A.C.H. Initiative and After-School All-Stars Hawaii (ASAS Hawaii), Kalakaua Middle School will now be able to provide year-round comprehensive after-school programming for at least 180 students, who previously were determined to be “at-risk” children. Funding of $40,000 will go towards opportunities such as: Academic and Homework support, in efforts to enhance their educational development; the “We Ready” transitional program for high school readiness; Life Skills Development courses with focus in cooking, financial literacy and budgeting; Youth Leadership activities in order to promote environmental awareness and student-led success; and the “The Sports Showdown,” a multi-sport competition between schools, encouraging an athletic and healthy lifestyle.
