Time To Get Back To Basics At KEY Project

Adult education is on the agenda this winter at KEY Project, which is registering students now for the Jan. 28-March 6 term.

Participants can earn a Hawaii Adult Community School diploma, formerly the competency-based high school diploma. Coordinated by Kamuela Kala’i, this first session offers five units of study in basic life skills: government and law, health, consumer economics, community resources, and occupational knowledge. Each unit runs for six weeks, meeting twice a week during the day at KEY for 2.5 hours each session.

Enrollment fee is $20, plus $15 book fee per class.

KEY will cover the costs for those enrolled in Ho’ohuli, its program that supports educational and economic success. For more information, call Kala’i at 380-7431.

The fully equipped computer lab also is offering classes or one-on-one sessions for all ages and skill levels from 8 a.m. to noon Tuesdays and Thursdays, or Wednesdays after school or from 5 to 8 p.m for open lab. For details, call lab and IT manager Angel Lemus at 380-7432.

The nonprofit Kualoa-Heeia Ecumenical Youth Project (KEY) is located at 47-200 Waihee Road in Kahaluu.
