Workforce Education and Training Support

Welcome to the HINET Ho‘ola Ike (gift of knowledge) program. University of Hawai'i Community Colleges in partnership with the State of Hawai'i Department of Human Services has created a new program to deliver assistance and support for college and workforce training. The SNAP Employment and Training program is a state and federally funded program that is designed to help remove barriers and provide students with access to education and skills training opportunities so they can earn a living wage and achieve financial independence.
