KA‘I Program
Kūkulu Alaka‘i ‘Iolani is a summertime partnership with Jarrett Middle School.

"I had some great teachers at ‘Iolani. I wasn’t always the best student, but I remember being challenged and inspired. I also remember my fellow students being really smart and awesome. I was also fortunate to have the opportunity to teach at ‘Iolani for three years with Mr. Roberts. He taught me a lot about being an artist and a teacher. He trusted me and gave me the first opportunity to really be a teacher. Without Dave Roberts, I would not be where I am today."
