Welcome to the Aloha MAP summer program.  Aloha MAP - Meritorious Achievement Program, a Native Hawaiian Education initiative, is a federally funded grant project, fiscally sponsored by Friends of the Future, a Hawaii 501(c)3 non-profit corporation located in Waimea, Hawai'i. 

Aloha MAP offers children and youth culturally-relevant academic and cultural learning opportunities designed to reduce summer learning loss, improve student proficiency in English Language Arts and Math and increase student knowledge in Hawaiian language and culture.
