Together, we can shift students’ perception of what’s possible.

In Hawaiian, Kokua means to come together to fulfill a need.

Today, students on average spend an entire school year with substitute teachers by the time they graduate, resulting in a diminished educational experience. Kokua Education brings together a growing network of passionate guest teachers who are dedicated to leveraging this time with students.

We believe that proximity is power and one role model can change a life forever.

Our mission is to connect students with positive influences who can create an environment where students feel free to explore possibilities they didn’t even know existed. Every day, we come together as a community to help children discover who they are and who they can become.
