Hanahau`oli Partnership Programs
Professional Development Center
The Professional Development Center (PDC) at Hanahau`oli offers workshops and coursework about best practices in education with a particular emphasis upon early childhood and the elementary years. Made possible through an endowment from the Clarence T. C. Ching Foundation, programs include teachers from both public and private schools, joining together to create learning communities that foster 21st century skills.
The Professional Development Center at Hanahau`oli aims to promote best practices among community educators and to improve the quality of education for children in Hawaii. Through community partnerships, collaborative arrangements and networking, the Professional Development Center supports the growth of teachers, building upon the expertise and experience of the Hanahau`oli community and other outstanding educational resources. The PDC builds on established relationships with teachers, schools and universities in the community, formalizing Hanahau’oli’s commitment to serve a public purpose.
