About the Center

The Samoan Language Center is a 501c3 non-profit organization. It is a community-based service program designed to provide young Samoan children with an opportunity to learn their heritage language and culture utilizing interactive, hands-on, and culturally relevant strategies. Strong partnerships have been established with the University of Hawaiʻi Samoan Language and Culture Program, churches and local businesses. These partnerships are closely involved with the community in the planning, implementation, and on-going assessment. The school is operated by community members, parents, and volunteers.
