How Does It Work?

Each student will customize their individual journey of Hawaiian language sharing in Hālau ʻŌlelo. Historically, when Hālau ʻŌlelo first began, students would purchase 4 instructional hours per month for $55.00 USD, meeting at the same time slot, same day of the week for 4 different dates, each meeting an hour long. For some students, this was just enough time to complete their class work and move on to the next class in the new month. For other students, this was not enough time and would carry over their studies into the new month. Prescribing a program and all of its parameters on availability of time, space, energy and finances was not working out.

Moving forward, participants are encouraged to create their Hālau ʻŌlelo participation from their individual availability. When signing up for Hawaiian language classes, submit your request for class availability via the sign up form. You will work with a member of our enrollment team to see what's possible. We ask that you do this planning a minimum of one month in advance. Once you are in communication with that enrollment team member, you will be prompted to pay per class as listed above in the details.

A teacher or student leader may instruct the curriculum for that course. Teacher and student leader availability will vary from month to month and will not be noted prior to your enrollment.

If you would like to be in conversation with one of our enrollment team members regarding what this would like look for you, contact us at and we will schedule a phone meeting with you.
