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.
