Overview of Programs

 By 2025, our dream is to offer programs falling in the following 3 pillars: (1) leadership development, (2) cultural revitalization, and (3) community partnerships.

LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT

We aim to be one of the thought leaders in Pacific economic development by providing a suite of internationally available programs that lead to economic freedom, opportunity, and stability. Our programs include:

  • E-Mentorship Program for scholars applying to institutions of higher education.

  • Scholarships for scholars applying and attending institutions of higher education.

  • Pacific Coalition in Higher Education for Pacific college student groups to build presence on campuses, unite internationally, share resources, spread knowledge, and community-build.

  • Pasifika Workforce Program focused on increasing Pacific presence across professional industries.

CULTURAL REVITALIZATION

Our media programs aim to be a source of positivity, inspiration and authentic representation of Pacific cultures and communities. Our programs include:

  • Spotlight Articles showcasing inspiring Pacific people across academic and professional fields.

  • Visual Storytelling to highlight Pacific cultures and communities.

  • Pacific Community Center and Library to host workshops, share knowledge and uplift Pacific people.

  • Cultural Grants to share Pacific culture and uplift Pacific community.

COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIPS

We strive for excellence, accountability and clearly measured outcomes/outputs when partnering with governments, CBOs and organizations. Our community partnerships are meant to provide internationally accessible programs for the benefit of our greater Pacific community.
