Program Theme: This is a site-based Project Paradise program. Students will learn about Hawaii, culture, history, lifestyle and self-identity. While it may seem like a "FUN" field trip, we must take the SCHEDULE and instructions very seriously. Also, there is a mandatory reflection session at the end of the program for all groups to complete. We will make this program goal-oriented. Each group must complete a reflection sheet at the end of the program, therefore all students must be focused during the program. This is not just FREE TIME. Be careful!!!
