Ka Ipu Kukui Fellows


Ka Ipu Kukui Fellows
A Decisions Maui and Focus Maui Nui Initiative

Ka ipu kukui translates to crucible of light.  

Maui Nui occupies a special place in the state, country and world. However, as Maui Nui residents, we face many challenges that could erode the unique splendor of our islands. Ka Ipu Kukui Fellows is a year-long program designed to train community-identified future leaders.

A Decisions Maui and Focus Maui Nui initiative, the Ka Ipu Kukui Fellows program was conceived to promote and develop future leaders through a community-based program designed to address planning for Maui Nui’s future. 

If you know of an outstanding individual you would like to nominate for this opportunity to shine, please contact Dr. Lori Teragawachi at 984-3406 or forward the application (located in the menu bar).
