Nā Pua Noʻeau (NPN) is a University of Hawaiʻi program since 1989, and was founded by Dr. David Kekaulike Sing out of the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo. Each of Nā Pua Noʻeau’s centers throughout UH’s campuses carry forth the firm belief that all Native Hawaiian children have inherited gifts to reach their potential.
In 2018 Nā Pua Noʻeau UH Mānoa became a program under Native Hawaiian Student Services (NHSS). With NPN UH Mānoa added to the ʻohana, NHSS is the only office throughout all of UH’s campuses to provide support programs from PreK-Kupuna.
Throughout the year NPN UH Mānoa provides enrichment programs grounded in Hawaiian culture and language as the foundation for keiki of all ages. With family engagement, college preparedness and summer enrichment opportunities, it is hoped students will be inspired to pursue their post high school and career pathway aspirations.
