GOT JOB? Huahana o Hilo (Products of Hilo)

 Full Life Introduces Our Newest Prevocational Program!

CONC- TUT

Full Life is pleased to announce Huahana o Hilo, a new and progressive prevocational program designed specifically for Waiver participants.  This groundbreaking prevocational service is a unique result of Full Life’s collaboration with the first commercial Makery in the State of Hawai’i.  And it’s located just downstairs from Full Life’s office in downtown Hilo.

Huahana O Hilo will create   customized and competitive employment, enabling Waiver participants to lead   the way in manufacturing technology.  Participants who graduate from our   program will be job-ready or able to pursue micro-enterprising in product   design.  Successful graduates pursuing micro-enterprising will receive   their own laptop with the design software needed for their career!    Classes start in January, 2014.  The deadline to sign up for our January   class is December 15, 2013.

For background information   about The Makery, see the recent article from Tribune-Herald:
