Thank you for your interest in the Hānai Program.
Did you know 30% of first-year students do not return to UH Mānoa at the end of each academic year? But if students feel supported and connected with the university, they are more likely to stay. We are looking for alumni volunteers who are willing to “hānai” one or more UH Mānoa students – to serve as mentors and help kick-start their Hawai’i network. Your support of this program for our first-year students will help make Mānoa feel like home. It’s a minimal time commitment – just meet with your student(s) at least once a month.
