What our learners say:

"EA Ecoversity has given me access to a wider range of people and networking opportunities. I have learned so much already about Hawaiian protocols and customs. Recently, I got into contact with someone teaching programming through creating video games. This connection will prove to be pivotal in my progression as an entrepreneur."

- Mālama Mckeague

"I come from a small town with little opportunities and when I heard about this program, I thought it would be a perfect chance to gain experience I never had but wanted."

- Tuupua Helekahi

"I have enjoyed the opportunity to participate with other learners on the ʻŌlelo Noʻeau Team.  I also developed a more concise vision of marketing techniques with a deeper understanding for my majority customer demographic through the Kanaka Enterpreneurship class."
