Who we are

Purple Maiʻa Foundation is on a mission to educate and empower the next generation of culturally grounded, community serving technology makers and problem solvers. From our origins in 2013 as a small, startup nonprofit teaching Native Hawaiian kids to code, we’ve become a team of over 30 educators, developers, digital creators, and innovators who run programs for the lāhui in youth technology education, local workforce development, entrepreneurship, and design. We work remotely and in person, across ka pae ʻāina and beyond. We seek the purple-ness in everyone we serve and are on a journey to grow into serving our community members who are incarcerated.

With us on this journey is Worknet, an innovative non-profit that prepares prison inmates for a successful reentry into community living to reduce recidivism. Worknet works with clients while they are in prison at least 6 months prior to release with programs that cover art, pro-social skills, individual development plans, and problem solving. Worknet continues to assist when they reenter the community with offender reentry services, such as help finding jobs, securing housing, obtaining a driver’s license, and restoring identity documents. Worknet designs client services based on current criminogenic research and evidence based practices.
