HTI offers Computer Classes at WCCC

Hawaii Technology Institute (HTI) began offering computer classes at the Women’s Community Correctional Center on Tuesday, October 4, 2011.

The classes are offered on Tuesdays and Thursday and support employment–related services and activities to assist the incarcerated women as they transition back into society.

HTI course instructor, Makamae Kahawai, comes with expertise in the various MS Office programs and provides her students with  the knowledge of the programs used in today’s workplace, based on students’ learning needs.

HTI is honored to partner with the Hawaii Department of Public Safety to help these students acquire skills that promote opportunities for employment once they leave prison confines.

“We are excited about this opportunity to work with WCCC to assist these mothers, grandmothers, sisters, nieces, wives, and daughters as they transition out of the prison into Hawaii’s workforce.  There is so much power and positive influence in working together for the development of our communities.   HTI is privileged to serve Hawaii’s prisons through training and education,” says Naomi Digitaki, the Institute’s President / CEO.
