ʻImi Naʻauao Peer Mentor Program

Building academic relationships, I ka Imi Na‘auao

“E lawe i ke aʻo a mālama, a e ʻoi mau ka naʻauao. Take what you have learned and apply it and your wisdom will increase.” (Pukui, 1983)  A reminder to us that when we learn and gain ʻike (knowledge), we have a kūleana, a responsibility to apply, use, and share it with others.

The STEM Peer Mentors at Kapi‘olani Community College are STEM majors who have achieved a required level of expertise and have been recommended by the Math & Science Faculty as a standout student.
