Pledge to Our Keiki Learning Library
A Partnership Between Hawaii Department of Education and Kanu Hawai’i
The Pledge to Our Keiki is not just a social impact initiative that works to educate visitors and residents, it is also a partnership for students to learn about service, to become ambassadors for Hawaii’s future, and to care for the places they love the most. Through a five-year agreement with the Hawaii Department of Education (HIDOE), Kanu Hawaiʻi will provide learning opportunities for students in grades K-12. Together, we are committed to the learning and development for the next generation of leaders to develop HĀ competencies through a daily commitment to malama and kokua Hawaiʻi in a changing world and climate.
We are thrilled to share the Pledge to Our Keiki Education Resources for educators from all schools: public, charter, and independent, as well as clubs and groups that empower young people. These resources will continue to expand to meet the goals and outcomes of the initiative.
Goals and Outcomes
Pledge to Our Keiki education resources provide education leaders with a guide for classroom and school projects. All resources are designed to inspire projects that connect HĀ competencies, social-emotional learning skills, and project/place-based learning frameworks. The first collection of resources is designed to support student and community learning and engagement with the Pledge to Our Keiki, special places in communities, and corporations and nonprofit organizations committed to communities across Hawai’i. These resources also create opportunities for students to collaborate as young changemakers, designing and acting now to carry and paddle Hawai’i forward toward a sustainable future. For these reasons, we are grateful to provide them and support their integration into schools and communities.
