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.

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.

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.
