ILI Hawai'i participants
Get a glimpse into the ILI intensive experience through this day-by-day look.

Goals for the ILI Hawaiʻi Intensive

  1. Continue to articulate the purpose, origin & intercultural approach of ILI as a grounding for the overall cohort experience.
  2. Offer curriculum across all 4 core topics (Who We Are, Where We Are, How We Work, Why We Matter) and the range of communities that anchor ILI.
  3. Offer intentional space for relationship-building & connection with the cohort balanced with intellectual & skill-building work.
  4. Offer a deep-dive experience into the Native Hawaiian sense of place and people.
  5. Offer opportunities for local community and others to engage with ILI cohort & content.
