Our awesome supporters!

This program supports over 300 students with 90 volunteers. It positively impacts hundreds of lives for students and their families.

Foruteen years ago Pat and Richard Endsley founded the Lahaina Complex After School Tutor Project (then known as the Wednesday Tutoring Program) with a handful of volunteer tutors — most of them retirees from the community — to help a skeptical but eager to learn group of youngsters from the Lahaina Complex schools.

The growing number of participants is indeed impressive, but a more important factor has been the improvement in test scores.

Standardized test measures for reading and math have shown marked improvement over the thirteen years of the program which is due to all the volunteers throughout the years.

This translates into the Lahaina Complex schools making advancements toward meeting the Average Yearly Progress (AYP) levels within the No Child Left Behind Act federal education guidelines.

With the obvious struggles that have characterized the Hawaii Department of Education over the years — low-lighted by bottom national ratings and Furlough Fridays — it is an inspirational highlight to follow the ascension of the tutoring project and its efforts to secure a positive future for our children, for our community and for the world at large.

None of this would be possible without support from our donors. The People for Educational Equlaity is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. All donations are tax-deductible.
