     Career and Post-High Counseling (CPHC) department.
           Käpili ‘Oihana, which means “to build a career or profession,”
     is a 12-week program offered during summer and winter and is
     focused on: 1) providing opportunities to develop 21st century
     skills and competencies; 2) building professional networks, and 3)
     increasing employment opportunities with the end goal of gaining a
     sustainable career.
           CPHC director Stacy Clayton explains, “A primary objective of
     KOIP is to provide students the tools they need to become competi-
     tive and earn a livable wage. According to our survey results, most
     students feel this program has accomplished this goal.”
           To monitor program effectiveness, Käpili ‘Oihana administers
     surveys to both interns and servicing sites at the end of each intern-
     ship period. First year evaluations indicate that KOIP accomplished
     short-term objectives in alignment with the Kamehameha Schools
     Education Strategic Plan (ESP).
           Overall, participant responses were positive: 1) the vast major-
     ity of participants would recommend the program to others, indi-
     cating that they valued the program; 2) the majority of respondents
     strongly agree that the experience increased their knowledge and
     helped them to develop new skills, and 3) most internship provid-
     ers are committed to continuing as a KOIP site.
           Jewel Henderson KSK’97, CPHC program specialist, further
     notes, “While our program monitoring reveals that we obtained
     a 100 percent satisfaction rate, we also know the value of continu-
     ing these monitoring efforts in order to ensure quality service and
     impact for our interns and servicing sites.”

Playhouses for KS Preschool

T
       he excitement of giving back hung in the air at the July dedication
       ceremony of two student-built playhouses from Nänäkuli High
       and Intermediate School (NHIS) to Kamehameha Schools’
Nänäkuli Preschool II playground.
     “The playhouses are the result of the cooperation and aloha of the
students and the community,” said Naleisha Pelekai-Wai KSK’03, the
woodshop teacher at NHIS.
     That spirit of aloha was received warmly by the KS preschool ‘ohana
and, according to preschool faculty, the playhouses are a wonderful addi-
tion to their playground which underwent renovations this summer.
     “We are so very grateful that the school thought of us,” said Kaila
Lui-Kwan, assistant regional manager for the Kamehameha Wai‘anae
Coast preschools. “I know that our students will love them and I know
their imaginations will run wild as they play on them.”
     Though excited about the donation, Lui-Kwan was even more im-
pressed by the aloha of the students from NHIS.

                                                                              Anakalea is a two-year veteran of the school’s annual service project,
