Hawaii Literacy listed as one of 6 great small non-profits, (11/01/11)

Hawaii Business highlights Hawaii Literacy’s “Assets-based approach” toward helping children recognize their strengths and take control over their own literacy education. Suzanne Skjold, executive director, uses the organization’s youth program as an example. Hawaii Literacy lets the children choose projects and how to implement them. Because the organization doesn’t emphasize their weaknesses, their strengths shine through. Older kids help younger ones. All take ownership in the program.
