Hawaii Learning Resource formerly the dba of North Hawaii Women and Children's Services whose mission is to empower all kinds of learners through partnerships that bring advances in teaching and learning to our community.
Impact Summary from the Nonprofit The problem Hawaii Learning Resource seeks to address is that too many capable Hawaii Island students struggle in school, become disengaged in learning, and too often fall through the cracks in the current predominantly one-size-fits-all educational system. This happens despite well meaning teachers and despite the fact that success in school is vital for success in today’s economy. A 2009 study states “Low achievement as early as 4th grade is a powerful predictor of high school and college graduation rates, as well as lifetime earnings.” (McKinsey & Company, April 2009) In Hawaii, 74% of public school 4th grade students scored below proficient reading levels in 2009 (Kids Count Special Report, Annie E. Casey Foundation.) These students often lose interest and motivation by middle school, struggle to keep up academically, and many drop out of school. Students with learning differences are even more likely to struggle in school and to become disengaged in school, making engagement in learning especially important for diverse learners. Hawaii Learning Resource seeks to increase student success through early identification and effective support of students who struggle in school, their families, and their teachers. Increasing success in school will increase the opportunity for these students to acquire the skills to make positive life decisions and to be successful in life. Unfortunately, many schools in North Hawaii lack the resources necessary to work more effectively with diverse learners and many teachers have not had recent and specific professional development on how to more successfully assess, engage, and help students with learning differences. Hawaii Learning Resource’s programs are modeled on evidence-based programs such as the All Kinds of Minds Institute (, and focus on increasing student success for diverse learners through Summer Academic Enrichment Camps, Community Education Workshops, and Teacher Professional Development.
